Get Involved

There are lots of ways that you can help UNHCR - directly and indirectly. One obvious way is to make a donation, which will go straight to helping our field operations around the world. Other ways to support UNHCR's work include holding awareness and fundraising events in your communities, marking World Refugee Day, keeping up to date on our activities and joining in an online dialogue on popular social networking sites about our work and those we help.

• Fundraise

Run a half marathon, do a sponsored swim, put on raffle or a car boot sale - whatever takes your fancy! BMYCharity.com/UNHCR makes it really easy for your supporters to donate - just register your event, spread the word, and your friends, family and colleagues can all donate securely online. If you'd like to use UNHCR materials and resources (banners, T-shirts, posters etc) please email us at gbrloea@unhcr.org

• Donate

You can provide life-saving funds to support our appeals, buying tents, providing vital healthcare or helping children attend school. You can donate online today.
