Today is World #RefugeeDay.
Being a refugee is not by choice - it can happen to any one of us.
Although, the majority of refugees we assist are fleeing persecution, war and violence, many are fleeing natural disasters.

Did you know that on 22 January 1954, Australia was one of the first countries to become a party to the The United Nations Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees?
Indeed, it was on this date that we as Australians made an agreement to care and support refugees.
"Under the Refugee Convention, refugees have a number of rights. Some of these rights are specific to refugees (for example, the right to a travel document)."
"Many of these rights are also recognised in other human rights treaties – for example, freedom of religion, the right to work and the right to education."
"Refugees are also entitled to the same rights as citizens in relation to freedom of religion, intellectual property, access to courts and legal assistance, accessing elementary education, labour rights and social security."
