Help Renew Hope For Refugee Families in Burundi
“My children have to go to school barefoot. We have nothing. We left everything behind when we fled after my husband was killed.”
These are the words of Daisy Skitu, whose young family is caught up in a forgotten crisis no one is talking about.
Since political violence erupted in Burundi in 2015, hundreds of thousands have been forced to flee into neighbouring countries. Some are now opting to return home, but over 300,000 people are still displaced. Behind that appalling statistic are real people like Daisy, their lives torn apart.
Please don’t ignore the plight of Burundi’s forgotten refugees. Donate now.
UNHCR is on the ground helping Burundi’s refugees get the basics like food and shelter. We are protecting them from harm and getting children back into school. We are also assisting those who decide to voluntarily return to their country despite the complex situation. But the scale of the need is immense, and we can’t do this alone.
Please donate now.
