ALBION and England Under-21 striker Saido Berahino shared his story with UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, on World Refugee Day (Friday, June 20).
The Albion frontman has also set up a JustGiving page to help raise vital funds towards the UNHCR's ongoing commitment to change lives. You can make a difference and donate using the link below:
Anyone who makes a donation of £5 or more to the UN Refugee Agency before 9pm on Friday, June 27, will be in with a chance of winning either a ball or t-shirt signed by Berahino.
Berahino grew up in Burundi, a country that was torn apart by ethnic conflict between 1993 and 2005, and forced more than 1.5 million people, including him, to flee their homes and leave behind everything they knew.
On World Refugee Day, Berahino recounts his journey in the hope of raising awareness of the plight of the millions of refugees around the world.
