We help refugees

We are ordinary people who help refugees, like Zainah, by raising money for the essential needs of life: food, water, shelter, clothing and education. And, for as long as this crisis continues, we'll be there. Join us.

help refugees

Our volunteers distribute aid respectfully and with dignity.

Refugees are ordinary people too

"I would like to say thank you very much for helping us when we had the baby. My wife and I ran away from war, from death, from terror. We are now determined to raise our child well, complete our education, and see a fragment of the life we would have had in Syria."


"The volunteers interact very kindly with us. They don't treat us like refugees they treat us as if we are members of their own family. This is something that gives us a lot of ease and comfort after everything we have been through."


"Greece is part of my life now. I want to say thanks to all my awesome friends who support me here. I want to say that difficult moments introduced us to each other. My story is to be continued..."

~ Abdulazez

"We were very normal people living normal lives until the war came and demolished every beautiful image in Syria. We Syrians who refused to become part of the civil war have now somehow become a crisis ourselves."

Donate4Refugees shared Side by Side : Humanitarian Aid to Refugees's post.

A lovely thank you from Utopia56 in Paris letting YOU know that YOUR donations really do make a difference.

Join us by making a donation today to show refugees - human beings just like all of us - that you support them in their hour of need.

On 8th June a team from Coupa Software came together as volunteers for a day to pack these Emergency Backpacks (which they also funded) for refugees living in incomprehensible conditions in northern France and Paris.

It was Liz Morgan of Side by Side : Humanitarian Aid to Refugees and Siobhan Burleigh of HERTS FOR REFUGEES working together who made it all happen. And there are others to thank too (they know who they are <3).
