Action for Venezuela
Fundraising with UNHCR Canada
In support of Venezuelan refugees, we need your help!
Welcome to our fundraising page for Venezuelan refugees with UNHCR Canada!
More than 5,000 Venezuelan refugees are crossing into neighbouring countries every day.
And they need your support!
Due to severe shortages of medicines, medical supplies and food, rampant insecurity and violence, millions of Venezuelans are pouring out of their crippled nation in the biggest migration crisis in Latin American history, causing growing alarm in the region.
According to United Nation High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), over 4 million Venezuelans have left their country in the last couple of years. UNHCR has stepped up its support to respond to the humanitarian needs of those Venezuelan refugees and is working around the clock to rush essential relief.
According to UNHCR: “We are responding to a refugee crisis unlike anything we've seen before”.
The UNHCR is providing and coordinating relief efforts with local governments and charities to manage this rapidly deteriorating crisis. Their efforts include medical attention, clothing, food and shelter, protection responses for unaccompanied children, indigenous communities, elderly people, SGBV survivors, LGBTI persons and people with disabilities. UNHCR manages refugee sites in over 10 countries in the Americas.
In order to provide refugee relief, UNHCR needs to raise $158.2 million. Only 21% has been funded.
We are working together to raise more funds for UNHCR Canada than we ever could alone!
Helping Venezuelan refugees is a cause we care about deeply.
Venezuelan refugees worldwide are in desperate need of our support. They have every right to live a safe and dignified life as much as we do!
UNHCR provides shelter, food, water, medical care and other survival aid to Venezuelan refugees who are forced to flee their homes to escape hunger, lack of health care, human rights violations, violence or persecution, among many other plights.
