Regular Giving

Join our emergency response team and maximise your impact as a regular giver today

Every year, thousands of people flee their homes and countries to escape conflict, violence, disaster and persecution. Hungry, thirsty and exhausted, they need help – fast.

Your regular gifts support UNHCR’s emergency response, enabling us to go straight into action.

UNHCR is often first in and last out in a refugee crisis. Thanks to you, our teams can be on the ground within 72 hours, providing vulnerable families with shelter, water, food, medicine and other life-saving essentials. Our emergency teams include experts in relief coordination, human rights, camp management, negotiation, and water and sanitation.

Your gifts can also support UNHCR’s long-term work with displaced people. A regular gift can provide healthcare, education and livelihood training, helping people rebuild their lives with dignity.

With more than 100 million people now displaced around the world, there has never been a greater need for UNHCR’s work – and your support. Please join our Emergency Response Team today to help people fleeing for their lives.
