This World Refugee Day, we celebrate the power of sport by profiling eight refugees who have benefitted from sport in resettling into their new environments.

20 June is marked as World Refugee Day, to celebrate and honour refugees from around the world. This year, we profiled eight refugees from across the world for whom sport has been an imperative force in aiding their resettlement and provided them with a positive outlet to heal. 

Hear from them about how sport has transformed their lives! Thank you to the organisations who contributed quotes and photos from their programme participants. Those organisations are also named in the images below.
