UNHCR | Donate to help people fleeing violence in Ethiopia
Fearing for their lives and the lives of their families, millions of children, women, and men have been forced to flee, traveling on foot over harsh terrain with little food or water. Most of them fled with nothing, and many are without adequate shelter.
UNHCR is on the ground – and we are needed more than ever.
You can help meet needs and save lives.
Our teams are supporting people forced to flee with essentials such as emergency supplies, protection support, and shelter.
But we need your support to scale up our supplies and stay prepared to respond if the situation worsens.

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.
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].
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.
