Syria Emergency - Donate Now - UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency

Ten years of war. Help Syrian families survive winter

After more than a decade of crisis, life is harder than ever for displaced Syrians. 

There are over 6 million Syrian refugees in the world right now. The majority of them live in poverty in neighbouring countries.   

Refugees are still living in makeshift shelters, years after fleeing their homes. More and more parents are struggling to feed their families. Fewer and fewer children are able to go to school.   

And every winter, the situation becomes even more desperate as the bitter cold sets in and winter storms wreak havoc for these vulnerable families.  

UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is on the ground inside Syria and in neighbouring countries – and with your support, we can do more. Your support can help provide winter cash assistance so Syrian refugees can afford heating stoves, fuel, and winter clothes, and provide displaced families inside Syria with essentials like winter clothes and sleeping bags.   

You can give hope this winter. Please donate today. #WarmTheirHearts

What does UNHCR do?

UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is a global organization working to save lives, protect rights and build a better future for refugees, internally displaced communities and stateless people. We work to ensure that everybody has the right to seek asylum and find refuge from violence or persecution.

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. UNHCR staff work as closely as possible with and for people forced to flee, with 90 per cent of our workforce in field locations. For further details on UNHCR's budget, read our Global Report.

Why should I donate monthly or on a regular basis?

By choosing to give a regular donation, you will be helping UNHCR to plan ahead and invest in long-term projects to improve the lives the refugees.

Faster help: Monthly donations allow UNHCR to respond to emergencies when a crisis occurs. Your gift can go where it's most needed.

Support of long-term operations: More predictable income helps UNHCR go beyond short-term emergency aid and provide families with ongoing relief and protection every single day.

Easy to donate: To set up a recurring donation, please choose the Monthly option in the form. You can always update your donations by contacting our Donor Care team at [email protected].

UNHCR does, however, partner with dedicated fundraising associations in a number of countries as well as having country specific offices with their own fundraising capacity. These countries include the USA, Germany, Spain, Japan, Australia, Italy, Canada, UK, South Korea, Hong Kong and Belgium. In order to make tax deductible donations through these offices you will need to donate through their individual websites. We are, however, able to issue a receipt of donation from UNHCR international that may be accepted in certain instances. We would suggest that if in doubt you contact your local tax advisor for guidelines on whether your gift is eligible or not.
