We meet the critical daily needs of refugee men, women and children in Europe. We provide extra layers to people left cold, shelter to people left homeless, food for people left hungry, and much more. We care passionately about helping and, together with our trusted grassroots partners, we use your donations to give humanitarian aid with dignity and in friendship, person-to-person, human-to-human.

Donate4Refugees has been registered with the charity commission for England and Wales number 1168435 since June 2016.

We are all volunteers so that your donations, and Gift Aid where added, are spent on aid.

We support spending donations in refugee hosting communities because it’s often more cost effective, it’s better environmentally and it supports local businesses and communities which builds important goodwill.

When the war started I was in my third year of medical school. I was forced to leave and have sought refuge in Greece for a year and four months. Every day for the past six months I have prepared meals for refugee children at various centres.
— Subhi, Syrian Refugee
I have not seen my children in two years. Anyone would go crazy after a few weeks. Two years. We are human too. We feel too.
— Waleed, Syrian Refugee
I was a student in Syria. I left after losing my entire family to the Syrian Civil War. I gave myself the name Infinity, it is tattooed on my neck. There forever. A reminder of my personal strength for escaping with my life.
— Infinity, Syrian Refugee
