Refugees are people just like you and me. Though they are faced with a grim choice - stay and die, or flee and risk imprisonment, rape, torture and forced recruitment by armed groups.
UNHCR is the only organization mandated to act as a safety net and protect over 35 million of the most vulnerable people in the world - which is why we need your donations to help those who need it the most.
As the United Nations refugee agency, we care for refugees by providing a tent for shelter, clean water, sanitation and vital health care. Without UNHCR, many refugees would not survive.
Donate today to help refugees and help continue our life-saving work.
