2021 World Refugee Day Fund


World Refugee Day, recognized annually on June 20, was established by the United Nations to celebrate and honor refugees around the world. According to the UN, every minute, 20 people leave everything behind to escape war, persecution or terror. More than 80 million people around the world have fled their homes, which is just the beginning of a long and difficult journey, often involving refugee camps, abrupt relocations, family separation, and unnavigable bureaucratic processes. The theme for 2021 is “together we heal, learn, and shine.” The shared experience of COVID-19 has shown us that we only succeed if we stand together. Through a single donation to the Fund, you can support multiple organizations working for and on behalf of refugees around the world. Join us in shining a light on the rights, needs and dreams of refugees so that everyone can not only survive, but also thrive.

GiveDirectly's mission is to reshape international giving, making unconditional, direct cash transfers to the poor the benchmark against which other interventions are evaluated. We believe the best way of achieving this mission is by maximizing cash delivered to the poor, with the ultimate aim of ending extreme poverty.

Since 1968, Anera has helped refugees and others hurt by conflicts in the Middle East live with dignity and purpose. Anera, which has no political or religious affiliation, works on the ground with partners in Palestine (West Bank and Gaza), Lebanon and Jordan.

That’s how Anera delivered 98.3 million in programs in 2020 alone, and it’s how we will keep building better lives until hope finds its way in the Middle East.

We deliver lasting results for millions of children, including those hardest to reach.

We listen closely to their voices, gathering insights that allow us to provide innovative human-centered services and programs.
