The Power to Rebuild 

World Refugee Day on 20th June and World Refugee Week (17th-23rd June) are marked every year to honor the strength and resilience of refugees around the world.

As increasing numbers of people are forced to flee their homes, conflict and instability serve as the main driving force behind most of the world's food crises. As a result, millions of people facing the overwhelming challenge of rebuilding their lives following displacement must also navigate the threat of hunger. 

This harmful combination of crises is felt around the world, but it is women and girls who are particularly affected. At greater risk of being subjected to exploitation, trafficking and sexual and gender-based violence - the challenges women refugees face are immense.

Scroll to find out how you can join our #ServingUpSisterhood campaign and celebrate the resilience of refugee women through the unifying power of food.
