There are over 65 million displaced persons in the world today. This fiscal year, the United States will accept as many as 110,000 refugees fleeing violence and persecution, marking the largest number of refugees arriving in the country since 1994.
CWS has helped more than 850,000 refugees over the past 70 years. Without the compassion shown by communities across the U.S. our work would not be possible.
As we continue to work on sustainable solutions for refugees during the largest global displacement crisis in recorded history and a period of uncertainty for U.S. refugee resettlement program, we call upon our supporters to lead by example and show the world we are #greateras1.
