UNHCR - Support families forced to flee
More than 100 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.
At this Geneva Triathlon 2022, together with you, we aim to collect CHF 22'500 to support 40 displaced families in desperate need of shelter and humanitarian aid.
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?
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.
However, in the very rare case that this emergency response becomes fully funded, your support will be used to provide vital assistance to people forced to flee around the world.
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.
