World Refugee Day is held yearly on June 20 and it is a day set aside to help raise awareness for the different struggles facing refugees around the world. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has recently made an effort to support the plight of refugees around the world, encouraging members to become involved.

One of the most extensive ways the Church has sought to help refugees has been the creation of I Was a Stranger, a new program featured on the official Church website. Here are just a few of the things it has to offer.

  1. An official letter from the First Presidency
  2. Messages from other General Auxiliary Presidents, including Linda K. Burton’s landmark talk discussing the new program
  3. A place to send in your personal experiences with serving refugees and official hashtags to use on social media. (#IWasAStranger)
  4. Exclusive videos featuring the refugee history of the Church and modern-day refugees.
  5. Ideas on how you can serve
  6. Lists of places you can serve
  7. Official information about how the Church is serving refugees
  8. Seven common challenges refugees face
  9. Questions to ask when identifying potential organizations to serve with
  10. The Church’s partners in global relief endeavors
