According to the estimates of UNHCR- The UN Refugee Agency, there are 84 million displaced people worldwide. By the middle of 2021, the number passed the count of 84 million. Out of this, 26.6 million are refugees.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 has similarly caused thousands of families to be displaced from their hometowns and an estimated 2 million refugees.
The widespread military invasion has prompted many women and children to flee their homes in search of a protected place.
