This is the text (if you need help).

Many refugees are escaping from wars. They all want to live in a safe country. More than forty multinational companies will give jobs to 250,000 refugees. They will help the refugees in the next three years. The United Nations is happy about this. It said the jobs "are absolutely essential".

There are 110 million refugees worldwide. Around 22 million of these are from Ukraine, Syria and Afghanistan. The U.N. said: "Every number is a story of an individual family who left everything, seeking safety." Amazon is giving jobs to refugees. It said refugees bring diversity and creativity.
