Why we’re honoring the Women’s Refugee Commission this World Refugee Day

With World Refugee Day just around the corner, Prosperity Candle will be celebrating the refugees close to our hearts and others around the world. Every Prosperity Candle is a vehicle for change, helping to lift Burmese women refugees out of poverty. And now through June 30th, every candle also benefits refugees around the world as well!

Prosperity Candle is proud to be partnering with the Women’s Refugee Commission and will be donating 5% of all gifts purchased through June 30th to the Women’s Refugee Commission to assist them in carrying out their work.

The Women’s Refugee Commission’s mission is to improve the lives and protect the rights of women, children and youth displaced by conflict and crisis. The commission researches their needs, identify solutions and advocate for programs and policies to strengthen their resilience and drive change in humanitarian practice.

For twenty years the Women’s Refugee Commission has been devoted to identifying critical problems that affect displaced women, children and young people, documenting best practices and proposing solutions for improved humanitarian assistance. The commission is dedicated to improving refugee policy and practice until measurable long-term change is realized.

Prosperity Candle is pleased to assist the Commission in striving for a future in which refugees and internally displaced women, children and youth are safe, healthy and self-reliant, and have their human rights respected and protected.

Make a greater impact with every gift you give this month, lending a hand to refugees all over the world!
