Advocate for Refugees and Migrants

Those without a safe shelter to call home are among the most vulnerable people for exposure to COVID-19. Today, more than 70 million people worldwide have been forcibly displaced from their homes. Some are living as refugees in other countries, others have sought asylum, and many are displaced within their own countries.

All people deserve safe housing, basic healthcare services and necessities like soap and clean water, even when circumstances in their home countries have forced them to migrate for the safety and well-being of their families.

Help Refugees Overcome Trauma

Displacement can cause severe psychological distress. Urge Congress to support the MINDS Act to address mental health needs in foreign assistance.
