Help COVID-19 prevention for refugees and displaced people worldwide

COVID-19, the coronavirus pandemic, endangers everyone on the planet – including refugees and other people displaced people who belong to the most marginalized and vulnerable members of society. They are particularly at risk during this coronavirus disease outbreak because they often have limited access to water, sanitation systems and health facilities.

UNHCR is stepping up health, water, sanitation and hygiene services to protect refugees and displaced people. But we can’t tackle this pandemic alone.

Help us now so that we can reach everyone in need.


16 THB/Day

To provide hygiene supplies and training health workers in refugee sites under the guidance by WHO and the health.

25 THB/Day

Give a water distribution system, hygiene supplies and proper sanitation facilities.

Your donation will help support the prevention and response efforts to protect refugees, and internally displaced people.
