Every minute, 20 people are forced to flee war, persecution, natural disaster or poverty. Often, they leave home with nothing, endure terrible
conditions on their journey and are denied the protection and support they need in their chosen place of refuge.
Pope Francis is asking people around the world to work together and walk 24,900 miles – the distance around the whole world.
As part of Refugee Week we took part in a walk around Wrekenton in support of this cause.
