UNHCR | Help families forced to flee
More than 114 million people have been forced to flee war, conflicts and persecution around the world.
They need to be protected. They need shelter, access to clean water, health care, education and jobs. They need a fair chance.
Today, over one per cent of humanity is displaced.
With your help, UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, can give refugees what we’d want for ourselves and our loved ones. Protection from harm. Shelter. Food. Water. Blankets. Medical supplies. The chance to go to school and the hope of a future.
But we can’t do it without the support of people like you.
How would you like to donate?
Regular gifts help us to plan ahead and provide long-term support to displaced families wherever and whenever it's needed most.
By making a regular donation to Switzerland for UNHCR, you will provide refugees with ongoing relief and protection and help them regain hope for a better future.
If you are resident in Switzerland, your donation is tax deductible. Direct federal tax: 20% of net income, provided that the amount of the donation is at least 100 francs. Municipal taxes: depending on the canton, up to 20% of net income for individuals and 20% for companies. For further information, please contact the tax authorities in your canton.
We will happily explore with you the ways in which you can maximize your impact on the fate of people forced to flee in the way that fits you best. Please email us at [email protected] or call +41 22 552 78 08.
