Lifesaving Aid for Refugee Families

Item # 40938

Keep a vulnerable refugee family alive for $25.

There are nearly 3 million refugees across Africa who have fled their homes due to violent conflict and persecution. UNHCR (the UN refugee agency mandated to protect refugees) works with governments and non-profits to assist refugees. However, less than half -- mainly those living in refugee camps -- are served.

Especially for some groups of refugees, such as certain ethnic minorities, mixed ethnic marriages, orphans and single women, the camps are fraught with unmanageable perils. Some refugees live in danger in the camps, while many others flee and are forced to risk living in urban slums where they are at further risk.

RefugePoint works to fill the critical and unmet needs of people affected by war and conflict who have fallen through the net of humanitarian assistance. This commitment is expressed through targeting individuals, families and groups of people overlooked by existing aid programs. RefugePoint strives to alleviate human suffering, to protect life and health, and to raise awareness for these vulnerable people.

RefugePoint treats these most vulnerable refugees through a combination of medical and community services. Their social workers staff find the worst-off refugees -- the vast majority are women and children -- hiding in the slums of Nairobi and provide them with comprehensive care, including medical consultations, HIV/AIDS care and treatment, counseling, livelihood assistance, and placement into safe shelters for refugee orphans at immediate risk of abduction or attack.

For as little as $5 per person, you can help keep a family of five refugees alive with emergency food supplies for one month while social workers work with the family to find lasting solutions to their predicament.

This commitment is expressed through targeting individuals, families and groups of people overlooked by existing aid programs. RefugePoint strives to alleviate human suffering, to protect life and health, and to raise awareness for these vulnerable people.
