World Refugee Day

Together we heal, learn, and shine: JRS calls for greater inclusion of refugees in health systems, schools, and sport.

Our Mission

JRS seeks to accompany, serve, and advocate the cause of refugees and other forcibly displaced people, that they may heal, learn and determine their own future.


JRS relies on a broad range of partners — communities, local and international NGOs, corporations, foundations, institutional donors and public funders — to shape and support our programmes.


Already fleeing from war, violence, and emergency situations, the almost 80 million refugees and displaced people around the world are likely to be among the hardest hit by the pandemic.
