    Universal access to human rights is not a new concept. But refugees face challenges in claiming them. Stand with them, on #WorldRefugeeDay and every day. https://t.co/2CF6jqpw46

    Two-thirds of the millions forced to flee come from these 5 countries. ?? Syria ?? Venezuela ?? Afghanistan ?? South Sudan ?? Myanmar Peace and stability in just one of those countries would make an enormous difference. https://t.co/eQP6MwIaca

    Excellent news today! UNHCR and IOM announce the resumption of refugee resettlement travel. Owing to COVID, departures were delayed for many refugees but as travel restrictions begin to ease we are working to resume movements in a safe and swift manner: https://t.co/1hYM7xsAIU

    1% of the world's entire population is now displaced. That's 79.5 million people who have been forced to flee their homes owing to conflict, persecution and insecurity. UNHCR has not seen a higher total. https://t.co/aWO5cFC2VP https://t.co/RndxTlEGeO

    Year after year the records shatter. At the end of 2019, more than 79 million people had been driven from their homes. Each and every one deserves protection. https://t.co/5dimJ8g6W7

    As we live through #COVID-19, we must show solidarity for those in need of support. The Global Compact on Refugees is a key tool to achieve this. #EveryActionCounts Join @UNHCRUK & @TRF today to discuss the challenges & opportunities of #COVID19 https://t.co/r7eSo0g9Ew https://t.co/N1ViTOrj2T

    In higher income countries, refugees have been key workers fighting COVID-19. In lower income countries, there are real fears of socio-economic fallout. I’ll be discussing the challenges & opportunities of #COVID-19, and how to stand #WithRefugees. https://t.co/r7eSo0g9Ew https://t.co/k7QrMa2wwM
