UNHCR | Chad-Cameroon Emergency | Support Refugees
Dozens of people have been killed and injured. Children have been separated from their families. Whole villages have been burnt to the ground.
As people tried to escape the violence, thousands have been displaced inside Cameroon. Tens of thousands more have fled across the border as refugees into Chad.
Ninety-eight per cent of people fleeing are women – including many who are pregnant – and children.
These families urgently need your help.
UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is on the ground, distributing life-saving support, such as blankets and shelter. We are rushing aid to protect and support more people forced to flee – but we can’t do it alone. You can help people forced to flee in one of the most forgotten crises in the world.
Please give what you can.
Your support can help save lives.

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.
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. 84 per cent of all funds raised go directly to field operations, 10 per cent get allocated for global programmes and 6 per cent for headquarters administration. Also, UNHCR staff work as closely as possible with and for displaced and stateless people, with 90 per cent of our workforce based in field locations.
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.
