According to a new report by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), a record 65.6 million people worldwide were forcibly displaced from their homes due to conflict or persecution by the end of 2016. The number marks a jump of 300,000 from the end of 2015. ‘This equates to one person becoming displaced every three seconds - less than the time it takes to read this sentence’ the United Nations report said.
