The number of people forcibly displaced as a result of persecution, conflict, generalised violence and human rights violations stands at an unprecedented 79.5 million globally. Often these displaced groups also face ethnic exclusion, as they are systematically blocked from rights, opportunities, and resources that are normally available to members of society and that are key to social integration. Whilst the causes of displacement and ethnic exclusion vary from country to country, they are characterised by repression and an inability of marginalised ethnic groups to participate fully in the normal relationships and activities, available to the majority of people in a society.
WorldShare works to provide spiritual care, security, education, health and economic livelihoods to these marginalised communities.
