Millions of people around the world have taken part in events celebrating World Refugee Day.
The UN, which established World Refugee Day in 2000, believe more than 70 million people have been forced from their country.
More than half of them come from Syria, Afghanistan, South Sudan, Myanmar and Somalia.
The UN declared this year’s theme “Every Action Counts.”
According to the UN, refugees are unable or unwilling to return to their country due to fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group, or political opinion.
During this year’s focus, a number of events were held online.
One artists has even created a emoji for the day. See the video below.
