Sunday, June 20th, marks World Refugee Day. The day aims to raise awareness of the world's 15 million refugees, of whom three-quarters come from the developing world.
The theme of this year's observance is "Home" and highlights the plight of those who have been uprooted from their homes by conflict or persecution.
The UN has appealed for all refugees to have a place to call home, whether it is in their native or host countries.
A report by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees found that in 2005 more than a million refugees voluntarily returned to their own country.
Last year, only 250-thousand did so -the lowest number in two decades. World Refugee Day was founded by the UN General Assembly in 2001.
