They have arrived in Chad exhausted, traumatized and with signs of malnutrition. They urgently need shelter, food and water. Among them are unaccompanied children, who require special care.
They need your help TODAY.
UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is already on the ground, coordinating this emergency response. We have registered the refugees and distributed life-saving items, such as blankets, sleeping mats and jerry cans. We are now rushing more aid and building a new camp to ensure the refugees have access to appropriate shelter, basic services and protection.
UNHCR is at the forefront of the humanitarian response to this crisis but we can’t do this alone.
At present, we are severely underfunded with only 4% of the money needed to respond to the needs of refugees in Chad.
We urgently need your help to provide families forced to flee with shelter and protection.
