World Refugee Day is June 20. 

This years' UNHCR campaign brings the public closer to the story, showing refugees as ordinary people living in extraordinary circumstances. Several films featuring celebrity supporters tell the human side of the refugee plight. The films feature UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador and best-selling author, Khaled Hosseini, photographer and supermodel Helena Christensen, singer/songwriter Maher Zain and actor Jung Woo-Sung. They were recorded during recent field visits. Each supporter introduces an individual refugee and their story. These films and other refugee stories can be found on UNHCR's Campaign website www.refugeeday.org.
