Silent Emergency

Right now, there are more 110 million people displaced worldwide. More families than ever struggling to survive, and more children living in fear for their lives.

In such an unpredictable and volatile world, there’s so much we don’t know. And although we can’t predict the future, what we can do is plan.

That’s why your support is so important.

By donating to UNHCR Emergency Action, you’re not waiting till the last moment.
