Australia for UNHCR is the UN Refugee Agency’s national partner in Australia, raising funds and awareness to support displaced people across the globe.
Australia for UNHCR unites caring Australians – individuals, community groups and businesses – to support people fleeing conflict, disaster and persecution. We advocate and fundraise for refugee protection, emergency aid and long-term support and solutions, helping UNHCR reach millions of displaced people each year.
With more than 114 million people now displaced around the world, your support is needed more than ever. Join our Emergency Response Team with a regular gift to provide life-saving aid in times of crisis.
When an emergency strikes, we can’t leave families waiting. By donating every four weeks, you will help provide immediate relief to refugees fleeing war and persecution. Your gift will go directly where it’s most needed – No matter how dangerous the situation. No matter how long the emergency lasts.
Let them know they’re not alone. By joining our Emergency Response Team you can help a person in their darkest hour.
UNHCR works in more than 130 countries around the world. We are often first in and last out in a refugee crisis, providing vulnerable families with shelter, water and other survival essentials. Your gift to Australia for UNHCR can provide life-saving aid for people in their time of greatest need.
