After 12 years of crisis in Syria life is harder than ever for displaced families.
This is the world’s largest refugee crisis, yet after so many years, the Syrian conflict has sadly faded from the spotlight. Millions of Syrian children have never known a different life. The earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria have destroyed or severely damaged people’s homes and devastated lives even further.
Inside Syria, 90% of people are living below the poverty line, struggling to pay rent, buy food, and afford basic items such as medicine and school equipment. In neighbouring countries, Syrian refugees, as well as their host communities, are also struggling to afford necessities.
Please donate to UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, to provide Syrian families with the essentials they need to survive.
Syrian people deserve the chance to live in safety, go to school, and make a living to support their families. An end to the crisis is desperately needed – but without a political solution on the horizon, people forced to flee continue to need our support.
With a gift of 150 CHF today you can help a family afford essential items such as food, petrol, school fees or medicine.
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.

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.
