Europe Refugee Crisis Appeal

Despite media coverage dying down, there is still a refugee crisis in Europe today. Hundreds of thousands of people are in need of our support.

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.
