How You Can Help

Help refugee families

The most effective and efficient way you can help all year long is through a monthly gift.


Join the thousands of Americans helping to save, protect and rebuild the lives of the world’s most vulnerable people. There are so many ways you can help.

Building awareness in your community and raising funds will provide urgent assistance and long-term support for refugees all over the world. When you join USA for UNHCR – you are helping millions of children, women and men that have been forced to flee their homes due to war and persecution.

You help us reach more people and give a voice to those who are voiceless.

Take these actions to help refugees:
