Happy World Population Day!!🌏

Today (July 11th) marks World Population Day! Every year the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) has a different theme and this time it’s focus is on vulnerable populations in emergencies.

A record amount of people are being displaced by crises worldwide. Recent estimates are at around 60 million according to the UN. The UNFPA works in emergency areas worldwide to help achieve girls and woman’s rights. This year the aim is to raise the awareness of the huge needs of vulnerable girls and woman in emergency situations.
