How to Help Refugees and Migrants in 2023

A refugee is someone who has fled their own country due to a well-founded fear of persecution based on race, religion, nationality, social group, or political beliefs and is unable or unwilling to seek protection from that country or return due to fear. This definition is based on the 1951 Geneva Convention.

According to the United Nations, the term Migrant designates any person who has resided in a foreign country for more than one year, whatever the causes, voluntary or involuntary, of the movement, and whatever the means, regular or irregular, used to migrate.

There are many organizations and individuals helping families fleeing war and persecution to find a chance to rebuild their lives in safety.
