UNHCR says Thank You to the Refugee Olympic Team

#EOR is an acronym of the French name ‘Equipe Olympique des Refugies’. Members of the Refugee Olympic Team wore the inscription EOR while they were competing. 29 individual competitors were chosen by the International Olympic Committee to represent the 82 million refugees around the world at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Here, the UNHCR, their host, says “thank you” to all these competitors.
