Refugee crisis - Donate Now - UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency
The latest wave of brutality – the latest in 40 years of conflict – has forced more than half a million people from their homes so far this year. Thousands more are trying to escape as the situation in Kabul has unfolded.
The crisis is taking the heaviest toll on women and children, who make up 80% of Afghanistan’s refugees and internally displaced people. Alongside homelessness and the threat of violence, they’re facing drought, food scarcity, COVID-19 and a health system at breaking point.
Help us prepare for the worst.
UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is providing Afghans with emergency shelter, food, water, and health care, but our supplies are running dangerously low.
We urgently need your help to scale up our supplies, so that we can help people trapped inside Afghanistan, as well as refugees forced to flee to neighbouring countries.
Please donate now.
By donating today, you can help Afghan families access:
- Urgent cash assistance to help displaced families to afford food and rent
- Vital relief items such as shelter kits, mattresses and blankets
- Soap, hand sanitisers and hand washing stations
- Health activities and early detection services to reduce the spread of disease
Help us save lives. Please donate TODAY.
Monthly gifts help us protect more families forced to flee. By making a monthly donation to UNHCR, you will provide refugees with ongoing relief and protection and help them regain hope for a better future.
