SARAJEVO – On the Occasion of World Refugee Day UNHCR Shares Reflections from Key Stakeholders in BiH

World Refugee Day reminds all of us to do what we can to help people who need our protection. Protection is a human right. Many vulnerable families have lived for years in distressing conditions and urgently need protection and solutions. The country has an agreed strategy, and donors have pledged new funding – so now is the time for each of us to do our part to finally offer a better future for needy refugees, returnees and the displaced in BiH. – Andrew Mayne, UNHCR Representative to BiH
