World Refugee Day - Whoever, Wherever & Whenever With the on-going Ukraine-Russian conflict, there has been more scrutiny and light shed on the repercussions of the people caught in the war-torn areas. World Refugee Day is a United Nations observance that is held on 20th June every year and it is a day where we should take a moment to realise the significance of the mass exodus as a result of the conflict. With millions of people forced out of their dwellings, countries and communities are taking in these people for shelter. It is simply too hard for us to understand what it feels to be part of a situation like this. This year’s theme is “Everyone has a right to seek safety” and whoever, wherever and whenever they are and come from, they have a right to seek safety.

Invest in Our Planet Earth Day is celebrated annually to create awareness about pollution and to come together as one to look at another year of environmental progress. It is a day to think back and reflect how you have affected or impacted the planet. People think of ways to give back to the environment with new ideas to reduce their carbon footprints and water management, to name a few. They also get their hands dirty, with activities like tree planting with the Earth’s benefit at heart. It is important that people take a bit of time off on this day to think about how the environment has been affected by mankind and how they can do their part to minimize these impacts.
