In a sad coincidence, Father's Day and World Refugee Day fell on the same date this year, June 20. As we honored fathers and their role in building homes and structures to nurture their families, we also remembered those families who bravely struggle through the unimaginable forces that rip fathers from their loved ones.

Mennonite Mission Network works to heal the harm that is unleashed when global powers create situations that cause people to flee their homes. Here, we present a glimpse of some of Mission Network's ministries — past and present — that help alleviate suffering and bring hope in refugee situations on five continents.
