Children on the Run - Donate to Help Refugees - UNHCR

We urgently need your help to prevent more families being forced to take these terrible risks

The heart-wrenching image of Oscar Alberto and Valeria that we have seen in June 2019 is a shocking reminder of the desperation that forces people to take perilous journeys to reach safety.

We need your help TODAY to protect these vulnerable families and children.   

As crime and violence have increased dramatically in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, thousands of vulnerable families and children are forced to flee to Mexico, Costa Rica, Guatemala and other countries of asylum.

UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is on the ground responding to this mounting crisis, by providing safe spaces and shelters, cash to cover basic needs, and livelihood opportunities. But we can't do it alone.

We urgently need your help to shelter and protect these vulnerable children and their families fleeing violence in Central America.
