    I am very sad to learn of the loss of Professor Gil Loescher. He was a pioneering scholar and leader in refugee law and a great friend to UNHCR. He inspired so many of us. Our heartfelt condolences to his family and the @refugeestudies community. https://t.co/HcKAHknu0g

    Peace in South Sudan would mean ensuring people can access life-saving assistance. UNHCR echoes the appeal by @AntonioGuterres for a global ceasefire. https://t.co/Ihdr5jOC75

    Yemen is already the world’s largest humanitarian crisis. Now nearly one million displaced people and refugees are at risk, facing the threat of #coronavirus as well as torrential rain. We must act to save lives. https://t.co/Iapcv4Blni

    Nearly 50,000 people, including thousands of women, children and the elderly, have been displaced in the region this year. Civilians must get the protection they deserve in the Sahel and Lake Chad Basin. https://t.co/WbWKCgqYB0

    Nearly two-thirds of European countries have found ways to manage borders effectively during the coronavirus pandemic, while allowing access to their territories for asylum-seekers. These good practices must be safeguarded and strengthened. https://t.co/umdxtmah7I

    Across the world, refugees are on the frontline of communities responding to COVID-19. This refugee volunteer in the DR Congo wakes up at 4:00 AM every day to go to communities and share information on preventing COVID-19. https://t.co/QoWaQNmGTF
