For every emergency. Wherever, whenever
There are more people around the world who are forcibly displaced than ever before. An unprecedented 110 million have been forced from home, due to persecution, conflict, violence, human rights violations, or events seriously disturbing public order. A staggering 40 percent of those forced to flee are children.

Together we can be stronger in an uncertain world. Together we can be prepared. Together we can be more certain of making a difference.

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. 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.
