There are more than 25 million refugees in the world today, a number that is unprecedented in history. Whilst 85% of the world’s displaced people are hosted in developing countries, the crisis landed on Europe’s shores in 2015 when more than 1 million people risked the treacherous journey to Europe in hope of a safe and peaceful future.
However many of these people, who are victims of war and persecution, have instead found themselves stuck in appalling living conditions, for long periods of time, existing well below international humanitarian standards in over-crowded not fit-for-purpose refugee camps and on the streets.
At Donate4Refugees we choose not to ignore this ongoing human crisis on our doorstep. We choose to respond to the needs of these people. Through our grants and emergency funds we are at the heart of an inspirational grassroots volunteer movement helping asylum seekers and refugees in Europe access their basic needs of life. And we invite you to join us.

Effective ways YOU can help
We understand that life is busy, and there are many demands on our time and money. So here are a few small ways you can make a big difference to help refugees.
Financial donations don’t need to be large - just 60p buys a pair of socks to keep someone’s feet warm. And it only takes minutes.
To make a donation, simply click the “donate” button.
Fundraising can be really good fun! Whatever you enjoy, whether it’s running or cycling, hosting a bake sale in the office, or organising a Quiz Night. Fundraising raises awareness as well as lots of money!

Nearly all of our on-the-ground partners need volunteers. Volunteers are self-funded, need to have a minimum of 2-3 weeks to give, and have an open heart and a great work ethic!
