Unite for Peace | UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency

unite for peace unhcr fifa

The FIFA Women’s World Cup brings people together across borders. We stand united in our shared love of football.

Football is more than a game for refugees. Right now, 110 million people are displaced by conflicts or disasters like the war in Ukraine. Football gives refugee children the chance to run, laugh, play and dream.

UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, uses sport programs to empower refugees who have been forced to flee their homes – especially children and young people.

Sport provides a sense of normalcy in a situation that’s far from normal.

Will you give refugees a chance to play the beautiful game?

Please donate now to help us build sports facilities, buy equipment and educate coaches. Together we can share the joy of football with refugees.

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.
