Move for Mercy Corps
We’re challenging you to make a move and clock-up 154km, whether walking, running, cycling or swimming in June.
For those fleeing Damascus, Syria, there are 154km to travel to Za’atari Refugee Camp in Jordan. We’re asking you to match the distance, and raise at least £154 to help support refugees who are rebuilding their lives. This is just one of many journeys that refugees around the world have to make to find safety.
World Refugee Day is marked on 20th June 2022 to honour the courage, strength and determination of women, men and children who are forced to flee their homes and travel long distances under threats of conflict, danger and climate change.
From Syria to Nigeria, Yemen, Ethiopia, Myanmar, Iraq, Afghanistan, South Sudan, and now Ukraine, our global teams work with thousands of people affected by displacement every day.
