World Refugee Day

Oxfam has a longstanding commitment to supporting refugees - ordinary people who find themselves far away from home with no idea of what the future holds. Right now, we're providing Syrian refugees with food, water and shelter. But as these archive pictures show, our work with refugees in this region began decades ago. Then, like now, it was all possible because of support from people like you.
