Right now, more than 65.6 million people worldwide are displaced by war, violence or natural disasters—that’s almost double the population of Canada. The refugees we help work hard to rebuild their daily lives, but no one can do it alone.
We are grateful to the many individuals, corporations and foundations—people like you—who have supported UNHCR’s life-saving work. There are many ways you can take action in your own community. You can host an event or fundraiser on our behalf, organize an awareness event for World Refugee Day, participate in our annual poetry contest with your school, become a corporate partner or invest in our programs as a monthly donor. Thousands of caring and concerned Canadians from coast to coast are already working together to provide a brighter future for refugees—join us today.
