Your Will Can Be Their Refuge


How Your Legacy Gift Changes Lives

Ongoing conflicts, climate change and uncertain global crisis will force more people to flee from their home in the years and decades to come. UNHCR will keep protecting millions of the most vulnerable men, women and children around the world, upholding their rights in the face of conflict and violence, providing them with the urgent assistance they need, and helping them rebuild their lives.

We have been doing it since our formation in 1950, during the aftermath of World War II, and we will continue to do so as long as we are needed.

Refugees should receive the protection they deserve, now and in the future. Whatever challenges refugees may face, we will be there with your legacy gift, be it big or small.

By including UNHCR in your Will, Life Insurance Policy or Memorial Gift, you can ensure that when the conflicts and upheavals of the future drive innocent men, women and children from their homes, UNHCR will be there to make sure they are met with the support until they can find a place to call home to build a better future.
