Worldwide, We are now witnessing the highest levels of displacement on record.
Worldwide, there are now over 65 million forcibly displaced people – the highest number ever recorded. Of those, approximately 21 million are refugees who have fled their home countries as a result of conflict and violent persecution. The average length of time that someone remains a refugee is 17 years, a time-span that has increased over the past two decades due to the intractability of many conflicts.
In Sub-Saharan Africa, where united federation of volunteers for refugees action focuses its efforts, there are more than 3 million refugees fleeing violence and persecution in the Congo, Somalia, Ethiopia, Sudan, and other countries experiencing conflict and instability. The most vulnerable refugees include, among others, women at risk, survivors of torture, and orphans and other minors separated from their families. Without long-term solutions, these refugees will remain in desperate situations for decades, living in overcrowded refugees camps and urban areas, unable to rebuild their lives in dignity and peace
An unprecedented 21 million people around the world have been forced from home. Among them are nearly 21.5 million refugees, over half of whom are under the age of 18.
There are also an estimated 9 million stateless people who have been denied a nationality and access to basic rights such as education, healthcare, employment and freedom of movement.
In a world where nearly 1 person is forcibly displaced every two seconds as a result of conflict or persecution, our work at UFVRA is more important than ever before.
