The Scale

More than 60 million people are displaced around the world. This number is higher than

ever before. Violence, oppression, and persecution force them from their countries.

Leaving behind their communities, families, jobs and belongings, these people are desperate

 to start over somewhere safe. That’s 60 million people trying to build something from nothing,

 60 million people in need of a place to call home.
