UNHCR | Urgent Help Needed for Displaced Venezuelans

More than 7 million Venezuelans have left everything behind to seek safety from growing violence, insecurity, a lack of food and medicine, and poverty in their homeland. 

Years into this emergency, half of all Venezuelan refugees and migrants in the region cannot afford three meals a day. To buy food or avoid living on the streets, people are being forced to resort to survival sex, begging, and debt. 

You can help families in need. 

UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is working to provide essential support, including access to basic services and legal aid, as well as shelter and cash assistance. 

But we can’t do this alone. Please help protect these families who so desperately need your help. 

Please donate today.

Summary of donation information

One-off donation: Your gift will help assist and protect people forced to flee in Ethiopia, who desperately need your support.

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.
