This St Patrick’s Day, we are supporting those going through the same plight that the Irish faced 160 years ago, and showing the world how people can successfully integrate into and enrich their adoptive countries. During the famine, millions of Irish Refugees fled worldwide in search of safe harbor. We are encouraging people around the world to support the many non-profits helping Refugees.
