World Refugee Day

June 20 was World Refugee Day, an international day organized every year by the United Nations to celebrate and honour refugees from around the world. Every day thousands of families are forced to flee their homes and leave everything behind. On this day, let’s stand together to celebrate the strength, courage and perseverance of refugees who now call Surrey home.
The Surrey LIP and MAP BC (Zaytuna Services Society, Options, PICS, Mosiac, and Diversecity) hosted Surrey World Refugee Day on Monday, June 20, 2022, at 4–6pm at Surrey Library, City Centre Branch. Zaytuna Services Society sponsored the Gift Draw giving away prizes to deserving refugee families!
