Statement by Prime minister Dr Ruhakana Rugunda on World Refugee Day

Monday, 20th June 2016
On World Refugee Day today, 20th June 2016, we salute our citizens who have welcomed and hosted refugees and other displaced people in their communities, sharing their little resources with them, for many years.

We stand in solidarity with refugees and displaced persons because no one chooses to flee their homes. In addressing this crisis, we must, as a global community, take a holistic approach to tackle the root causes of bad governance, conflict ,poverty, underdevelopment and effects of climate change, that lead to displacement. The international community should effectively share the responsibility of taking care of the refugees by supporting host communities and countries. We should remember that today it is them, tomorrow, it could be anyone of us.
