Thank You for Supporting Refugees

At a time when the number of refugees and displaced people around the world reached more than 50 million—the highest since WWII—you gave generously and thoughtfully to UNHCR. Thank you.

It would be easy to become overwhelmed by that number, but we’re not and we know you’re not either. We’d like to share with you this short video that shows you how your gifts allowed us to deliver shelters, clean water, food, warm clothes, blankets—and hope. We think it just might be the best two minutes of your day, knowing that you helped us to reach more people in need than ever before.

There’s no doubt that 2014 was one of our most challenging years ever in our mandate to help the millions of refugees—over half of them children—who count on us for life-saving humanitarian aid and protection. But thanks to your support we will be there for them in 2015 and beyond.
