World Refugee Day is held every year on June 20. It is a special day when the world takes time to recognize the resilience of forcibly displaced people throughout the world. For World Refugee Day 2014, we will continue our global "1 Campaign", keeping with the theme: "1 family torn apart by war is too many". -- UNHCR
50 Million displaced means we would have to raise $50 Million/day to provide $1/day just to accommodate a state of extreme poverty for the current world refugee population, that's $18.25 Billion/year. -- World Bank outlines progress: 1.22 billion people lived on less than $1.25 a day in 2010, compared with 1.91 billion in 1990, and 1.94 billion in 1981.  

In case you don't get a grasp on the size, scope and seriousness of this problem, for the fundraisers. $18.25 Billion = $18,250 Million.
