Your gift provides life-saving protection and assistance to those most in need, especially women, children, and elderlies.
For refugee and displaced families in Malaysia, away from their homes and communities, faced with poverty and hardship, their future is filled with uncertainty. The COVID-19 pandemic and deteriorating economic situation globally has pushed many of those most vulnerable even deeper into poverty. Many have reported having lost their informal daily wages, and now face even more uncertainty.
As of end September 2021, there are some 179,510 refugees and asylum-seekers registered with UNHCR in Malaysia. Fleeing war, persecution, and widespread human rights abuses, these individuals are from Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, Pakistan, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, and others. Some 68% of refugees and asylum-seekers are men, while 32% are women. There are some 45,750 children below the age of 18.
From Syria to Iraq, Afghanistan to Yemen, your support allows us to reach those who have nowhere else to turn.
Let's imagine a better world for refugees!
Your support will:
• Help refugees gain access to life-saving medical assistance that they otherwise cannot afford
• Give refugee children a chance at education by helping refugee schools stay open
• Help refugees find ways to be self-reliant, so that they can feed their families
