World Refugee Day 2013

World Refugee Day is commemorated every year on 20 June.  UNHCR's campaign theme for 2013's WRD is "1family"; it asks people to "Imagine if your family had just 1 minute to flee..., what would you take?"  This call to action was inspired by a series of photos taken by Brian Sokol called "The Most Important Thing."

You can view his portraits of Sudanese refugees, Syrian refugees and Malian refugees to see what they chose to take with them when they fled.

What would you choose?  Visit UNHCR's Pinterest page to see what others have shared and take 1 minute to support a family forced to flee.
