“Nearly one person is forcibly displaced every two seconds as a result of conflict or persecution,” according to UNHCR. There are now about 69 million people across the globe who have been forced from home: The figures are astounding! Every single one of those people has an individual story and astonishing bravery that pushes them to survive. And the choice to leave home is excruciating—it’s dangerous, it’s unfamiliar, it’s scary.
