Urgent Appeal for Coronavirus (COVID-19) prevention and response plan
The COVID-19 outbreak has now been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. UNHCR is urgently appealing to support its prevention and response efforts to protect refugees, displaced people and host communities worldwide.
Over 79.5 Millions of children, women and men have been forced to flee to their home escaping violence, wars, conflicts and persecutions around the world. Your help is essential for their lives. Please donate today.
Donate today to help refugee children like Ella who need life-saving care
Six-year-old Ella hasn’t spoken since a bomb exploded outside her house. She’s so terrified she can’t speak. War, famine and disasters force families to leave their homes in the hope of finding safety. Often, they have only the clothes they are wearing. They arrive with nothing – not even the bare essentials needed for survival.
We urgently need your help to protect them. Food. Clean water. Shelter – you can help provide refugee children and their families with what they need to survive.
Could provide water filters, which will provide clean water for drinking, cooking and cleaning to 9 families.
33 Baht a day
Could provide all-season tents to keep a family safe and warm.
Refugees in Thailand
Today there are some 97,000 refugees in Thailand. Most refugees (91,803 as of January 2021, 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
