GlobalGiving Stands With Refugees

GlobalGiving Stands With Refugees

What: World Refugee Day is a one-day matching campaign focusing on the millions of people around the world forced to flee their homes, and seek refuge in foreign countries. Donations up to $2,500 will be matched at 100% while funds remain and there will be $3,000 in bonus prize for the top fundraising projects.

Why: According to the United Nations High Commissions for Refugees, at the end of 2017, 68.5 million people had been forcibly displaced worldwide. These millions of children, women and men have been driven from their homes by conflict, violence, natural disasters, human rights violations, or persecution. What’s more shocking is that “one person becomes displaced every two seconds.”

Who: The World Refugee Campaign is exclusively for active Partner, Leader, and Superstar organizations on GlobalGiving with projects supported by GlobalGiving’s Syrian Refugee Relief Fund, Rohingya Refugee Relief Fund, and East Africa Drought & Famine Relief Fund. Projects supported by these Funds will be automatically included in the campaign.
