Latest from UNHCR
As decades-long crisis flared up again last week, tens of thousands of refugees are fleeing to Armenia.
People arriving at the borders are exhausted and traumatized, in need of emergency relief and psychosocial care. Shelter support is urgently needed to make sure people are not left out on the streets. Thousands more people are arriving by the day, with the majority being older people, women and children.
UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is providing immediate assistance to new arrivals. We’ve already delivered critical supplies like bedding and mattresses as part of the government-led response. In coordination with local authorities and our partners, we are preparing shipments of more items to help people affected and their host families. But we need your help to do more – and be ready in case the situation worsens.
