The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) marks another sombre World Refugee Day tomorrow (20 June) as renewed violence in Iraq has driven half a million people from their homes to join an estimated 45.2 million people forcibly displaced around the world, according the UN refugee agency, UNHCR. Working with the UNHCR and other partners, WFP assisted 4.2 million refugees and 8.9 million internally displaced people around the world in 2013. The majority of those refugees and displaced people were from ongoing crises in Syria, South Sudan and Central African Republic (C.A.R.).
