Why we need your help
Across the world, millions of people have fled their homes in search of a safer place to live.
The Red Cross is the only organisation that helps people whoever and wherever they are, regardless of their reasons for leaving their home behind.
Your donation will help to save and improve the lives of people at every point in their journey to safety.
In countries across the world, you can help us to make a difference to people as they embark on a new life in an unfamiliar place.
Current situations we’re supporting:
Venezuela Population Movement
The situation in Venezuela is tense and evolving quickly. People have been fleeing the country since 2014, and it now has the fastest escalating movement of people across borders in Latin American history.
Recent political developments have led to a dramatic deterioration of what was already a challenging situation. These factors, combined with high levels of violence in some areas, have forced millions of people to leave the country over the past 18 months. UNHCR estimates there are at least 3 million Venezuelan migrants and refugees globally.
The International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies launched an emergency appeal to provide assistance to migrants and host communities.
By supporting our Global Refugee Fund you could help us to provide Venezuelan migrants and refugees with vital humanitarian aid, such as food, shelter and healthcare.
Donate now, and make a difference to a vulnerable person’s life.
For us there was no choice but to flee as soon as we could.
