Chuong fled her home to escape terrible violence. Her family struggles to keep their shelter safe and pay for supplies. Of her new life, she says that "we are free, but we are still facing many challenges.”
A record 68.5 million people around the world are forcibly displaced — by war, violence and persecution. Yet just when the need is getting bigger, the world’s commitment to refugees is growing smaller. Our response today is a measure of our humanity — and we must act to help those in need right now.
Rush your gift to help refugees and vulnerable people around the world survive the worst and build better, stronger lives.
More than two-thirds of all refugees worldwide come from just five countries: Syria, Afghanistan, South Sudan, Myanmar and Somalia. Mercy Corps is working in all of them. Your gift can help provide clean, safe water to Syrians who have fled violence, feed families from South Sudan on the brink of famine, protect Rohingya families in Bangladesh from violence, and so much more.
