How far would you walk at night for fear of violence?
On Saturday the 16th of June 2018, at midnight sharp, thousands of people will start their 40 kilometre walk from Amsterdam to Amsterdam, from Rotterdam to The Hague, from Utrecht to Utrecht 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 40 kilometre walks, an additional shorter walk will be held in the evening of the 16th. At the shorter walk, people of all ages, including children and families, are invited to participate and raise funds for refugees. This shorter 10 kilometre and 20 kilometre walk will be held in Amsterdam.
65,6 million refugees
Worldwide there are 65,6 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 end 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 9th edition of the Night of the Refugee is organised by the Netherlands Refugee Foundation (Stichting Vluchteling).
