Fans help support UN Refugee Agency

CONGRATULATIONS to the two winners of our UN Refugee Agency competition. 


Russell Bache wins a UN T-shirt and Connor Furnival a UN football - both signed by Saido Berahino - as a result of donating £5 or more to UNHCR via their JustGiving page. 


Berahino helped boost the profile of World Refugee Day on Friday, June 20 by recounting his own personal story which took him from Burundi to Birmingham.


The Albion frontman also set up a JustGiving page to help raise vital funds towards the UNHCR's ongoing commitment to change lives. 


You can still make a difference and donate using the link below but please note the competition has now closed:

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.
