The Map

World map showing movement of forcibly displaced people

This is hot off the press today and reflects the latest global refugee statistics (released earlier today by the UN). I’ve been producing the Map of the Refugee Highway for many years.

The news is not good. Here are some current realities.

  • The number of forcibly displaced people in the world has increased by 50% in the last 10 years.
  • 1:110 people alive today are forcibly displaced.
  • 44,400 people are newly displaced every day.

I will pick up where I left off tomorrow as I update other key IAFR resources designed to raise awareness and help create space in the hearts and minds of people.

Service Opportunities

Like every Monday morning, I checked in today with my Executive VP (Tim Barnes) and then the IAFR Service Team to review our priorities for the week.

Among other things, we realized the need to make known some key service opportunities with IAFR, including helping with…

  • Social Media
  • Publications
  • Graphic design
  • Webmaster

These are all important organisational capacities needed for us to advance our mission.

After putting together job descriptions and requirements, we will advertise these needs/opportunities on our website.

Please pray with us that suitable people would join with the IAFR team to serve in these important capacities!
