On Saturday 16 June, at midnight sharp, thousands of people will start a 40 kilometre walk from Rotterdam to The Hague during the Night of the Refugee (Nacht van de Vluchteling).
They are walking to raise funds for emergency aid for refugees worldwide, and to raise awareness for the situation of those people in need.
65,6 million refugees
Worldwide there are 65,6 million people fleeing from war, violence and oppression. All participants of the Night of the Refugee raise money for refugees and displaced persons worldwide.
We cannot end wars ourselves, but together we can make sure that refugees in severe circumstances have access to shelter, food, drinking water and medical care. You can help! Create your own team or join an existing team. You can still register for the Night of the Refugee, but make sure you do so in time!
The 9th edition of the Night of the Refugee is organised by the Netherlands Refugee Foundation (Stichting Vluchteling).
