UNHCR | Emergency in the Sahel | Donate Now

Violence across the Sahel has forced people like Rinata to flee from home. After witnessing the killings of her male relatives, Rinata has endured months of flight. She made it to safety in another town in Burkina Faso and now she is giving back to traumatized women survivors.

“There are women who have been raped. Their husbands were killed in front of them, and then they were raped. They are so affected. They scare at the slightest thing. They have nightmares.”

Women and children are bearing the brunt of this crisis. National health services are overwhelmed, many have reached breaking point.

We need your help TODAY. 

The COVID-19 pandemic is already affecting areas where people are forced to flee. Many are living in overcrowded conditions, unable to socially distance and with little access to water.

UNHCR is responding to this deepening crisis, but we cannot do it alone.

Please donate today.
