USA for UNHCR’s community of donors come from all corners of the United States and all walks of life. It is always inspiring to take a moment and read their words of what motivates them to care for refugees. Our donors are empowering refugees every day to build better, brighter futures. Take just a moment to read some words of inspiration from compassionate refugee supporters:
"The more I learned about the refugee crisis, the more I kept thinking what if that was one of our kids that these horrifying events were happening to? We had to do something." — Thomas M.
"No one chooses to be a refugee. They deserve love and support from the world. We are soon to see an explosion of climate refugees and must pull together as a community of nations to address the root causes and take responsibility for finding solutions." — Suzanne A.
“Because everyone deserves a chance to provide for their families and every child deserves an education.” — Michelle K.
“I have taught and worked with refugees for several years. I love to see them overcome the obstacles life has imposed upon them.” — Helen W.
“God blesses us every day. If I can help even one person, that’s my duty as a Christian, a mom and a human.” — Gina M.
“It could be I, so I put myself in their shoes. I want the refugees to remain hopeful, and I hope that my fellow global citizens will find it in their hearts to give whatever they can to help their fellow brothers and sisters.” — Margaret R.
“As a Muslim, it’s my duty and obligation to help people in need with whatever means I have. Does not matter if you can give more or less, a good deed like helping others is a reward in itself. The peace of mind I get knowing my little donation is making someone else's life a little better is very precious. I will encourage everyone to do the same.” — Fairuj J.
“We're all part of a global community. Those of us more fortunate in life must help our fellow citizens as best we can.” — Richard A.
"We all suffer when one community suffers. And that's what I hope people understand. We are interconnected and we will be even more interconnected tomorrow." — Regina T.
