In brief

At this moment, there are more people seeking asylum than at any point since World War II. People just like us, but with no choice but to run for their lives. Amnesty campaigns for people seeking asylum by urging the world’s governments to do their fair share to protect and assist people who are simply seeking somewhere safe to live.
