In a complex environment with fast shifting needs and priorities, we depend on donors to provide contributions that can be allocated as flexibly as possible. These allow us to direct funds where they are most needed, providing protection, shelter, water, health, education and other essentials to millions of refugees, asylum-seekers and stateless and internally displaced people around the world.

Seeing where your donations are spent

Many who give to aid organizations want to see more about where the funding they give is spent, what it is spent on, and how it has made a difference to the lives of people in need. By signing up to IATI, the International Aid Transparency Initiative, UNHCR can now provide greater levels of detail on its financial and results information.
