I am Migration
Conflict and persecution around the globe have forced millions of individuals to flee for their lives. More than 65 million people are displaced globally, outpacing the international community’s ability to respond. Not only are more people displaced today, but they are displaced for an average of 17 years.
While refugees come from everywhere—from Latin America to Afghanistan—the largest group is from Syria. The majority of these refugees are living in urban communities rather than refugee camps, communities in developing countries that are struggling to meet the needs of their own people. The changing landscape of migration requires new long-term solutions.
CRS is leading the way in providing refugees with lifesaving basic necessities such as food, water and shelter. We also have the opportunity to urge our leaders and the international community to address education, livelihoods and resettlement for refugees. Just as importantly, we can work for diplomatic solutions to the war and political instability that are the root causes of this global humanitarian crisis.
