Kuala Lampur, July 12 -- The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) will kick-off its global campaign dubbed Step with Refugees here in Malaysia this Sunday (July 14) to raise awareness of the plight of refugees who have fled their homes from war and persecution.

UNHCR traced the journeys of refugees around the world in the campaign, highlighting that collectively, refugees travel approximately two billion kilometres every year to reach the first point of safety.

The campaign, which will be launched at Publika Mall in Kuala Lumpur, invites people to act in solidarity with refugees by walking, running or cycling to achieve a cumulative total of two billion kilometres by end of 2020.
