World Refugee Day Quiz: 10 questions on the world's biggest crises
Take our quiz to test your knowledge of the biggest crises of our time.
This year's theme for World Refugee Day is #StepWithRefugees. Around the world, communities, schools, businesses, and people from all walks of life are taking big and small steps in solidarity with refugees.
This is very important, as about 70.8 million – one in every 108 people worldwide – were displaced in 2018. This includes 25.9 million refugees, 41.3 million people displaced within their own borders and 3.5 million asylum seekers. Globally, children make up about half of the refugee population.
Furthermore, new figures show the number of people forcibly displaced has soared rapidly, from 43.3 million in 2009.
