Join us this World Refugee Day as we share powerful stories of strength, resilience, and courage from the people we proudly serve with your support.
Designated by the UN, World Refugee Day (June 20th) celebrates the strength and courage of people who have been forced to flee their home country to escape conflict or persecution. World Refugee Day is an occasion to build empathy and understanding for their plight and recognize their resilience in rebuilding their lives.
At CORE, we believe everyone deserves safety from violence, the devastating effects of climate change and persecution. Our teams have been working to deliver lifesaving critical services to refugee families around the world. From Ukraine to Türkiye, our comprehensive shelter, emergency relief, health and wellness, and livelihood programs embody our commitment to meet the most urgent needs of refugees, migrants, and IDPs (internally displaced persons).
Why is World Refugee Day important?
At this very moment, the staggering number of people fleeing war, political upheaval, and environmental disaster is unmatched by any other period in human history. This year alone, 117.2 million people will be forcibly displaced or stateless. Often stuck in limbo struggling to access basic needs, refugees need vital humanitarian resources and interventions as they navigate unimaginable challenges.
How is Core helping ?
CORE is addressing the immediate and long-term needs of refugees around the world through the provision of emergency relief, shelter, health and wellness programs, and livelihoods support.
- In Türkiye, we have supplied 30,000 displaced earthquake survivors with lifesaving emergency food kits, hygiene supplies, and cash vouchers.
- Without a secure place to rest, refugees are unable to experience a genuine sense of safety. CORE has supported 145,000 shelter nights for 14,000 Ukrainian refugees and IDPs fleeing war across Ukraine, Poland, and Romania.
- Ensuring the well-being of refugees is an essential component of our work. At Romexpo InfoPoint in Romania, we have connected 90,000 Ukrainian refugees to services, including critical medical care for women and children.
- In Brazil, our Migrant Support Hub is connecting thousands of stateless people and migrants- from Haiti to Venezuela- with vital services to improve their access to employment opportunities and better social integration.
Together, we can continue to make a difference. Join CORE in empowering vulnerable families with resources so they can heal and rebuild their lives.

CORE’s mission is to empower communities in and beyond crisis. Our vision is a more equitable world in which underserved communities are prepared and can effectively respond to crisis from within. When a crisis strikes, CORE responds immediately to fill gaps, mobilize resources, and establish trust and collaboration from within communities to empower them to break these vicious cycles.
