Photos: Utahns celebrate strength and resilience of refugees

Refugees and volunteers dish up food at MOSAIC Inter-Faith Ministries in Millcreek following a prayer service on World Refugee Day. Thursday's service involved prayers from many different religions followed by a feast. World Refugee Day — established by the United Nations General Assembly on Dec. 4, 2000 — is an annual commemoration to celebrate the strength and resilience of the refugee communities throughout the world, recognize the struggles faced by displaced populations, and raise awareness about refugee issues.
