How far would you walk at night for fear of violence?
On Saturday the 17th of June 2017, sharp at midnight, thousands of people will start their walk of 40 kilometres from Amsterdam to Amsterdam, from Rotterdam to The Hague or from Nijmegen to Arnhem. They walk to raise funds for emergency aid for refugees worldwide and to raise awareness for the situation of those people in need.
Next to the two 40 kilometre walks, an additional 20 kilometre walk will be held. This shorter walk will be organized for the third time and people of all ages, including children and families, are welcome to participate and raise funds for refugees.
65,3 million refugees
Worldwide there are 65,3 million people fleeing from war, violence and oppression. All participants of the Night of the Refugee raise money for refugees and displaced persons worldwide.

We cannot stop the wars ourselves, but together we can make sure that refugees in severe circumstances have access to shelter, food, drinking water and medical care. You can help! Create your own team or join an existing team. You can still register for the Night of the Refugee, but make sure you do so in time!
The eight edition of the Night of the Refugee is organized by the Netherlands Refugee Foundation (Stichting Vluchteling).
If you are not living in The Netherlands, but you want to start your own fundraising for the Night of the Refugee, we recommend you to make your fundraising page at JustGiving.
