Europe Refugee Crisis Appeal

The refugee crisis in Europe continues to escalate. Hundreds of thousands of people are in desperate need of emergency relief.

The number of people forced to flee violence and conflict today is the highest since World War Two.

Many people are dying on dangerous journeys to Europe. Those who do make it here then experience immense suffering.
