Ways That You Can Help Us

There are lots of ways that you can help UNHCR - directly and indirectly. One obvious way is to make a donation, which will go straight to helping our field operations around the world. It's an easy process and you can give whatever amount you want - it all helps. To find out more, click on the donate link below. For those who want to play a more direct role, there are several ways in which you can get involved. We welcome interns throughout the year at our headquarters and in some of our other bureaux. Or you could work for UNHCR as a UN Volunteer. To find out more, click on the Volunteer link below. Other ways to support UNHCR's work include holding awareness and fund-raising events in your communities, marking World Refugee Day, keeping up to date on our activities and joining in an online dialogue on popular social networking sites about our work and those we help.
