Settling in Saskatchewan: Sponsoring Refugees and Displaced Families in Your Community
May 17, 2022 - 10:00 am – 11:00 am
On February 24, Russia launched a large-scale invasion of the Ukraine. Since then, more than 5 million people have fled the country. Annually, millions of people are displaced from their homes as a result of wars, persecution, violence, human rights violations, and the effects of climate change.
According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, global numbers for displaced persons exceeded 84 million in 2021.
