Syrian refugees, in their own words...

Syrian refugees, in their own words...

As President Trump issues yet another executive order banning refugees, we cannot forget that the global refugee crisis has a human face. 

CARE is working around the clock and around the world to aid the more than 65 million people forced from their homes, in accordance with our founding commitment to refugees. And while the numbers are staggering and incomprehensible, it’s important to remember that this is a tragedy comprised of individual lives and stories.

Here are just a few of them.

The global crisis is putting to the test our nation’s commitment to the rights of those fleeing violence and persecution to find safety on our shores.

America is better than the ban. And we must speak up now.

We urge our legislators in Congress to speak out unequivocally in support of refugee families, and to oppose this ban now.
