Your donations to UNHCR's winter appeal will help refugees.
This coming winter will be very challenging for millions of people forced to flee their homes around the world. Steep rises in the cost of basic commodities like food and fuel, combined with the climate crisis and consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic are forming a triple threat. Many refugees and displaced families will have to face winter struggling to keep warm.
For people forced to flee the war in Ukraine, UNHCR is providing winter supplies and helping reinforce homes and shelters against the harsh weather. Millions of Ukrainians are facing winter in displacement or are living in damaged homes, with disrupted energy, heating and water supplies and lost livelihoods.
In Afghanistan, we are delivering essential items like blankets, solar panels and winter insulation for tents to help vulnerable displaced families through the harsh winter months.
For displaced Syrians and Iraqis across the Middle East, UNHCR is on the ground working day and night providing aid and distributing life-saving supplies.
But we cannot continue this work without your help.
We need to act now, before it’s too late.
Your donation can help keep refugees safe and warm this winter. #WarmTheirHearts

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.
