Every year, the international community honors refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) with World Refugee Day on June 20. This year, International Medical Corps will take you deeper into the experiences of the refugees and IDPs we serve globally on the frontlines of war and disaster. Whether they are Syrian refugees in Jordanian camps or Congolese IDPs in temporary shelters, we meet those most in need wherever they are and provide emergency relief, comprehensive health care and long-term programming to help them recover and rebuild. Their lives are unique and their circumstances complex, but they are all seeking the same things: refuge, and a way to move forward.
These are their stories.
