From the islands of Greece to the shores of Bangladesh to the hills of Colombia, USA for UNHCR donors changed the lives of refugees in 2020. Refugees were forced to flee for their lives, and then came the threat of a global health crisis.

UNHCR was on the ground, ready to share the lifesaving support that refugees needed. Staff worked tirelessly to keep displaced families healthy and safe all year long.

Thank you so much for caring about refugees.
