Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Coronavirus (COVID-19) appeal for displaced families.

UNHCR is committed to preventing and responding to this international health emergency.

A COVID-19 induced recession is expected to push up to 115 million people into extreme poverty. Too many refugees have lost their jobs and income, and are struggling to meet their basic needs. Too many refugees have lost their jobs and income, and are struggling to meet their basic needs.

We are continuing our efforts to decongest camps and strengthen physical distancing measures; build up health, water and sanitation infrastructure and supplies; support government health systems; maintain schooling and help mitigate closures; protect women and girls from violence; and provide life-saving cash assistance.

Vaccination need to be inclusive as well. UNHCR supports refugee access to COVID-19 vaccines and works together with governments and partners to make sure refugees are included in the national vaccination plans. We also continue to protect refugees from the virus through health care, access to clean water, sanitation, and hygiene activities.

Your support is needed now more than ever to protect the most vulnerable. UNHCR teams across the world are determined to continue to stay and deliver—but we can’t do it alone.

You can help today with a 100% tax-deductible donation to UNHCR.
