Pres. Boakai Declares Thursday June 20, World Refugee Day

by Administrator

President Joseph Boakai has declared Thursday, June 20, World Refugee Day to be observed throughout Liberia as a Working Holiday.

This year’s observance will serve as a platform to raise awareness and promote solidarity with refugees through social media and radio programs.

According to a Foreign Ministry release issued recently, such programs will enable the UNHCR to disseminate information on the different durable solutions, notably repatriation and local integration.

The proclamation said the official ceremony of the Day will be held in Monrovia and all refugee-concentrated counties across the country under the theme:” Solidarity with Refugees, for a World Where Refugees are Welcomed”.

President Joseph Boakai has called on citizens and foreign residents, national and international youth organizations, and Government agencies concerned, to join the Liberia Refugee Repatriation and Reconciliation Commission (LRRRC) in executing programs befitting the Day.
