Ethiopia Emergency | Give Now | UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency
People in the Tigray region of Ethiopia are in crisis.
Fearing for their lives and the lives of their families, thousands of children, women and men have been forced to flee – there are 1.7 million people displaced in Tigray, and thousands more in Sudan. Most people travelled with nothing, and many are without adequate shelter. More than 5.5 million people are threatened by hunger.
UNHCR is on the ground – and we are needed more than ever.
Please help us meet needs and save lives.
Our teams are rapidly working to address the critical situation of forcibly displaced families with emergency shelter and core relief items like blankets, sleeping mats and jerry cans. But we need your support to scale up our supplies and get ready to respond as the situation worsens.
How would you like to donate?
Monthly gifts help us save more families forced to flee. By making a monthly donation to UNHCR, you will provide refugees with ongoing relief and protection and help them regain hope for a better future.

*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.
