The negative impact of COVID-19 is now real. The needs are growing and we need your support

OHRA is seeking about US$10 million to help priority NGOs serving large populations of poor, refugees, and displaced people prevent and respond to the coronavirus. “Now is the time for action. We can prevent the disease from spreading. With your support, we can save lives.”

Manner in which coronavirus affect refugees

Refugees and other displaced people belong to the most marginalized and vulnerable members of society. They are particularly at risk during this coronavirus disease outbreak because they often have limited access to water, sanitation systems and health facilities.

According to the UNHCR, "over 80 per cent of the world’s refugees and nearly all the world’s internally displaced people are hosted in low- and middle-income countries." They frequently face specific challenges and vulnerabilities that must be taken into consideration in COVID-19 readiness and response operations. Keeping the most vulnerable safe means keeping everyone safe.

OHRA is seeking $10 million to help non-profits partners working in countries hosting large populations of poor,  refugees, and displaced people prevent and respond to the coronavirus. “The worst of crises requires the best of humanity,” said the High Commissioner. “Now is the time for action. We can prevent the disease from spreading. With your support, we can save lives.” Support our Work!
