As the crisis in Afghanistan escalates, help provide urgent support for refugees who’ve lost everything, as they reach the UK.
WILL YOU DONATE TO OUR REFUGEE CRISIS APPEAL?
The crisis unfolding in Afghanistan is tragic. You can help refugees rebuild shattered lives in safety here in the UK.
Refugees, including those fleeing Afghanistan, desperately need your support. They’ve lost everything they have. The heartbreak of leaving your home, your family, your friends or your career is devastating, so it’s vital that people receive care and support to survive and thrive once they’re here in the UK.
There was already a global refugee crisis before the fall of Kabul, but as a consequence of the latest events, our services are being squeezed. We’re seeing increased demand, particularly for urgent mental health care, as refugees struggle with the trauma and grief brought on by this crisis.
Refugee Council’s expert teams are working hard to help hundreds of Afghans including translators and military support staff who have made it to the UK. But we know this is just the start of what’s needed.
We need to welcome and support hundreds more refugees in our communities over the coming days and weeks. While the Government has pledged to resettle 20,000 Afghans in the UK over the next 5 years, many more are in imminent danger and will be making their own way to find safety.
Together we can welcome refugees and support them to rebuild their lives, from the moment they arrive in the UK.
We need your help more than ever before. Donate today and you could help provide life-changing services for refugees arriving in the UK who have lost everything.
