FAMOUS REFUGEES. Part -II. George Soros.

Investor and philanthropist George Soros, was born in Hungary in 1930. After surviving the Nazi occupation of WWII, he emigrated to England and then to the U.S., where he launched his own hedge fund. As one of the richest people in the world, Soros used his fortune to launch the Open Society Foundations, a network of organizations that supports human rights in more than 100 countries.

As of May 2020, he had a net worth of $8.3 billion, having donated more than $32 billion to the Open Society Foundations. In 2016, Soros pledged up to $500 million to support refugee-run businesses and other initiatives that help refugees. This is what he had to say; “I chose America as my home because I value freedom and democracy, civil liberties and an open society.”
