In this day, 20th June, we celebrate the World Refugee Day, an important date selected by the United Nations. The European Multisport Club Association and the Welcome Team praise this initiative and are happy to play their role in the integration of refugees in the European continent. This is the power of Sport!
“In a world where violence forces thousands of families to flee for their lives each day, the time is now to show that the global public stands with refugees.
To do this, the UN Refugee Agency launched the #WithRefugees petition in June 2016 to send a message to governments that they must work together and do their fair share for refugees.
On World Refugee Day, held every year on June 20th, we commemorate the strength, courage and perseverance of millions of refugees. This year, World Refugee Day also marks a key moment for the public to show support for families forced to flee”.
