is an impartial, non-political humanitarian organisation mandated by the United Nations to lead and co-ordinate international action for the world-wide protection of refugees and the resolution of refugee problems.There is a 6-page pdf full-color leaflet that can be printed and shared that gives an overview of the need and the purpose of the day. There is a poster here. Many other resources are available, including curriculum materials for teachers, lesson plans and teaching tools that suggest helping people become more empathetic and open-minded in addition to promoting other particular values.
The United Methodist Church encourages us to reach out to refugees. The United Mathodist Committee on Relief has a strong emphasis on helping refugees:
Through UMCOR's Refugees/Immigration programs, congregations that reach out to refugees and immigrants in a spirit of welcome and sharing find their own lives enriched and their understanding of the world broadened. They gain a deeper insight into the biblical command, "Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it" (Hebrews 13:2).More resources and information on the issue and how we as individuals can help can be found at the sites linked above.
Since 1940, UMCOR's mission - providing relief in disaster areas, aiding refugees and confronting the challenge of world hunger and poverty - has helped to heal the hurts of humanity in nearly 100 countries.
