On June 20, 2022, World Refugee Day, Carty House colours will light up the Ottawa sign in the Market!
World Refugee Day is an international day designated by the United Nations to honour refugees around the globe.
World Refugee Day was held globally for the first time on June 20, 2001, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees.
This year, 2022, the focus will be on the right to seek safety. Every person on this planet has a right to seek safety – whoever they are, wherever they come from and whenever they are forced to flee.
Whoever. Wherever. Whenever.
Everyone has the right to seek safety.
