GENEVA – As global forced displacement reaches unprecedented levels, some 4,000 delegates from 165 countries, including refugee leaders, heads of state, governments, businesses and non-profit leaders from around the world have come together to open the three-day Global Refugee Forum (GRF). Together they will address the urgent challenges and long-term solutions needed for more than 114 million displaced people, of whom 36 million are refugees.

At the Global Refugee Forum in Geneva

"Let's Make this Forum Count!"

13 December 2023

" . . . With no clear long-term commitments in flexible international funding, the vulnerability of refugees and Jordanian host communities will grow even more precarious.

And the severe shortfall in funds for key agencies like the World Food Programme and UNHCR is negatively affecting the level of services, including cash assistance, education, and healthcare.

After cuts in World Food Programme assistance to vulnerable refugees this year, a deterioration in food security and self-reliance has become a painful reality for the vast majority, with 91 percent now being food insecure, compared to 63 percent before the cuts. 

So my friends,

For many years, we and other host countries have been offering shelter, education, healthcare, jobs, and resources to refugees at a great cost to our own economic progress.

But we recognise that this is a long-term commitment that we are undertaking on behalf of the international community.

And likewise, the international community cannot resort to short-term solutions and move on to the next crisis.

Jordan has often warned of the dangers of leaving a lost generation behind, yet, instead of making headway in resolving this ever-evolving and expanding refugee crisis—and even as new displacement crises emerge—we see attention waning.

We cannot afford for this to continue. Our global community cannot thrive if its most vulnerable are left behind.

Let’s make this forum count."

UN High Commissioner for Refugees,

Filippo Grandi - 3 March 2023



In the midst of Russia's horrific, dreadful warring terror

being inflicted upon the sovereignty of Ukraine,

utmost understanding and care

must be upheld for all . . .


Humane treatment must not be neglected because of 

one's color of skin, ethnicity, religion or national

origin during this forced mass exodus

in hopes of safe refuge.

Who Cares About Refugees?

"The recent crisis in northwest Syria is deeply personal for me. Over the past several years, I've traveled to Lebanon and Jordan to meet Syrian refugees in person.

I've listened while they've shared horrifying stories

of escape and survival. Right now, refugees who

have fled violence and danger in Syria are now

shivering in the freezing cold — living in

tents and flimsy shelters without

insulation. And those are the lucky

families who have managed to find shelter."

Scores  of  helpless  populations – into the “millions” – continue to seek  refuge  in  every  corner of the globe.  And with such

tremendous numbers of peoples

pouring out across borders,

the reality of the dynamics

and needs of refugees

is a wake-up call to the entire global

community.  No Nation – great or small –

can  turn  a blind  eye to  the refugee  crisis

which  is  an increasing daily  reminder  of

global  responsibility:  one  that requires

 joint  efforts of  firm commitments and

unyielding determination to ensure

the security and wellbeing of

scores of people globally who

deserve – and have a right to – a viable,

sustainable quality of life with human dignity.
