Refugees need your support now!

In some of the most unforgiving places on earth, YOUR support can provide protection, shelter, food and clean water, as well as education and health care – all vital and urgent needs for people who have fled persecution or conflict.

UNHCR cares for more than 10.5 million refugees worldwide and a further 29 million people forcibly displaced within their own countries - the world's need for our work has never seemed so great. From emergency situations to protracted crises, our staff is there to help, to shelter and to protect.

Your support will help ensure that we can continue to be there for as long as we are needed. Please donate now!
