Shelter can restore safety and dignity to families fleeing violence.

When refugees are forced to flee they leave everything behind. Families arrive in camps and settlements with only the items they can carry. Upon their arrival UNHCR responds with food, water, medicine and—most critically—shelter.

Shelter brings refugees immediate safety and protection. It protects families from the extremes of weather, gives them a place to rest and provides a base from which they can access food, water and healthcare. In the longer term, shelter enables families to protect their privacy, uphold their dignity and provide a sense of belonging while planning for their future.

You can give refugees safety, protection and hope today with a 100% tax-deductible donation to UNHCR.
