SOUTHFIELD, Mich., June 21, 2021/PRNewswire/ -- Helping Hand for Relief and Development (HHRD) marks World Refugee Day with an In-Kind Gifts Toy Drive for refugee children. There are currently over 79 million displaced people worldwide, more than at any time in modern history. Refugees often face dangerous obstacles on their journey to safety, including a lack of access to essential needs like clean water, food, shelter, and health care. They rely on the global community for survival, which is why your donations are so crucial.

With over 40% of displaced people being children, HHRD's In-Kind Gifts program has set out to bring smiles to their faces. This World Refugee Day, HHRD focuses on the power of inclusion. Kids are encouraged to donate a new toy, pack it at HHRD's Maryland In-Kind Center at 1817 Whitehead Rd Woodlawn, MD, and write a card for a refugee child. This event provides an opportunity for children to channel their compassion. Making an active contribution by packing a special gift for a refugee child can inspire the younger generation to further assist those in need.

HHRD offers many assistance programs for refugees and internally displaced persons. Through the generosity of our donors in 2020, HHRD has supported nearly 1 million refugees from 12 different countries residing in 17 host countries worldwide. This number of beneficiaries includes those assisted during its COVID-19 pandemic emergency relief response and various other programs.
