Families in urgent need of humanitarian assistance. UNHCR has stepped up our operations and capacity in Ukraine and neighbouring countries. We urgently need your help to continue providing life-saving protection to families forced to flee their homes.
Since the start of the year, conflict has already driven some 550,000 vulnerable people out of their homes – and more are fleeing every day. Men, women and children urgently need shelter and protection.
UNHCR’s emergency teams are working around the clock to provide life-saving assistance and protect those forced to flee. Some 61,000 people have been internally displaced since February. Thousands more are fleeing across borders into neighbouring countries : Bangladesh, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand.
Today there are some 97,000 refugees in Thailand. Most refugees (91,221 as of June 2022, under reverification) are ethnic minorities from Myanmar, mainly Karen and Karenni, who live in nine camps in four provinces along the Thai-Myanmar border. There are also approximately 5,000 refugees and asylum-seekers of some 40 nationalities who live in Bangkok and the surrounding urban areas
