Since the start of the year, conflict has already driven some 270,000 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.
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.
Help COVID-19 prevention for refugees and displaced people worldwide

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.
