UNHCR | Donate to help refugees in the Central African Republic

In one of the world’s poorest countries – the Central African Republic – brutal violence has driven hundreds of thousands to flee their homes in search of safety.

Exhausted and with few belongings, people forced to flee arrive in very remote areas with scarce resources. They urgently need water, shelter, and food, as well as psychosocial support to heal from their trauma. Communities hosting refugees are also being stretched to a breaking point.
Please donate today. 

UNHCR teams are on the ground delivering life-saving aid and protection to people who have fled their homes. But it’s not enough. Hundreds of thousands of people are still in need of support.

Summary of donation information

One-off donation: Your one-time donation will support people forced to flee in the Central African Republic and to neighbouring countries.
Monthly donation: Consider making a monthly donation. Monthly donations help assist more families forced to flee. By making a regular gift to UNHCR, you can provide refugees and displaced people worldwide with ongoing relief, protection, and hope for a better future.
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.

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].

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. 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.
