On June 15, World Refugee Day was held at New Freedom Park, located at 13th and Yosemite in Denver. Mercy Housing sponsored the annual event, although this was the first year the American Red Cross has participated. One woman approached a volunteer, and although she didn’t speak English, her wide smile and recognition of the Red Cross emblem indicated that the impact of this organization is felt worldwide.
