You may not know that Utah is home to roughly 60,000 refugees, who come from 20 different countries, and more resettle here every year. A refugee is someone who was forced to flee his or her country due to persecution based on religion, race, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group. More people are displaced throughout the world today than at any time since World War II. While this represents a tremendous need, it also offers a tremendous opportunity. Utahns can help by donating goods, money, or time and skills. Employers can hire refugees or offer business donations. There is a real need among refugees throughout the world and right here in Utah, and citizens of the Beehive State are already rising to the occasion, continuing to prove why Utah is the most charitable state in the nation.
