Families urgently need your help. Please, give what you can today.

Desperate families have no choice but to risk their lives to flee war and persecution.

They urgently need your help. 

You’ll have seen the media coverage showing desperate scenes of families who have lost their loved ones. Families on a terrifying journey in search of safety.

They need food, water and medical care. Please donate today.

Red Cross volunteers across Europe are working around the clock to support hundreds of thousands of refugees as they attempt to reach safety. From Turkey to Hungary, Greece to the UK – the Red Cross is striving to support people who flee war and persecution.

Please note 

The Europe Refugee Crisis Appeal will support refugees and communities affected by the crisis across Europe and in neighbouring countries. In the very unlikely event that we raise more money than can be reasonably and efficiently spent, any surplus funds will be used to help us support refugees anywhere in the world.
