"It is often said that 'home is where the heart is'. It is a truism that exists no matter where you are from."
Every day in GOAL, our staff work with families who have been left with no option but to flee their homes because of violence or hunger.
What was long considered a slowly-building crisis, a rapid escalation in numbers over the past five years has now brought on a displacement catastrophe.
A staggering 66 million people are now part of this global issue.
Somewhere in the world last year, one person was driven from their home every three seconds.
In the past 12 months, the problem has worsened again. And that is simply unacceptable.
GOAL is focusing on this theme of ‘Home’ as part of our 2017 Christmas Campaign.
Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to discover some of the people, and the stories, behind those who have been forced from their home.
