Refugee crisis - Donate Now - UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency
More than 100 million people have been forced to flee war, conflicts and persecution from Ukraine, Afghanistan, Yemen and other parts of the world.
They need to be protected. They need shelter, access to clean water, health care, education and jobs. They need a fair chance.
With your help, UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency can give refugees what we’d want for ourselves and our loved ones. Protection from harm. Shelter. Food. Water. Blankets. Medical supplies. The chance to go to school and the hope of a future.
But we can’t do it without the support of people like you.
Please give what you can to help refugee families.
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. We ensure that as many funds as possible are redirected to refugees, stateless persons and asylum-seekers. 85 per cent of all funds raised go directly to field operations. 7 per cent is allocated for global programmes, helping refugees, internally displaced people, asylum seekers and stateless people under the UNHCR mandate around the world, and 8 per cent is for headquarters administration. 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.

*Tax Disclaimer: Donations made directly to UNHCR may not be tax-deductible in your country of residence. Laws regarding contributions to United Nations agencies vary from country to country. UNHCR does, however, partner with dedicated fundraising associations in a number of countries as well as having country-specific offices with their own fundraising capacity. These countries include the USA, Germany, Spain, Japan, Australia, Italy, Canada, UK, South Korea, Hong Kong and Belgium. In order to make tax-deductible donations through these offices, you will need to donate through their individual websites. We are, however, able to issue a receipt of donation from UNHCR international that may be accepted in certain instances. We would suggest that if in doubt you contact your local tax advisor for guidelines on whether your gift is eligible or not.
