Refugees need your support now!

UNHCR relies for some 97 percent of its income on voluntary contributions. The remaining 2 to 3 percent the agency receives from the United Nations and it is entirely spent on administration costs. This means that more of your money can go to where it is the most needed. 

From emergency situations to continuing conflicts and crises – wherever people have been forced from their homes – our staff are there to help, to shelter and to protect. In some of the most unforgiving places on earth, donations can provide protection, shelter, food and clean water, as well as education and health care – all vital and urgent needs for people who have fled persecution or conflict. 

For those who have lost everything, a little goes a long way. Your support will help ensure that we can continue to be there for as long as there is need.

Donations to us are tax-deductible.

You can make your donation on our global website:


If you need assistance or have a question, contact your local UNHCR office.
