For the first time since World War II, there are more than 65.6 million displaced people worldwide, including more than 22.5 million refugees. From the moment they arrive in their new communities, refugee clients receive care, hospitality, and assistance from professional affiliate staff and from the hundreds of generous church volunteers who welcome the stranger through this ministry each year.
