Save Burundi's refugees


“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 refugees across the region. 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.

Health and other basic services are struggling to cope with the overcrowded, under-resourced camps and many children risk missing out on their education and a chance to build a future.

We’re 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 voluntary 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 to help Burundi’s refugees.

Summary of donation information

How does UNHCR spend my donation?
Your money helps UNHCR provide protection, shelter and other forms of assistance, and advocacy on behalf of displaced and stateless people every year. We ensure that as many funds as possible are redirected to refugees, stateless persons and asylum-seekers. 85 per cent of all funds raised go directly to field operations. 7 per cent is allocated for global programmes, helping refugees, internally displaced people, asylum seekers and stateless people under the UNHCR mandate around the world, and 8 per cent is for headquarters administration. UNHCR staff work as closely as possible with and for people forced to flee, with 90 per cent of our workforce based in field locations. For further details on UNHCR's budget, read our Global Report.
