My Story

I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2018 to raise much needed funds for Australia for UNHCR. We’re living an unprecedented refugee crisis, not only in Syria but also in places like Congo, Afghanistan or Iraq, with over 68 million displaced people and over 25 million refugees, more than half of which are minors. Please help me out in raising as much as possible to contribute to improving the situation. If I reach 2000AUD in donations, I’ll add an extra 500AUD. If I reach 4000AUD in donations, I’ll add an extra 1000AUD. From there onwards, I’m open to suggestions to make it more fun. Please make it as costly as possible for me. Any amount you can give makes a difference! You can also support me by encouraging others to get involved. Please email the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me. Together we can help Australia for UNHCR create the world we want to see.

About my cause: Australia for UNHCR

Emergency Response

Support from donors allows UNHCR to go straight into action.

When violence erupts and disaster strikes, support from donors allows UNHCR to go straight into action. UNHCR is often first in and last out in a refugee crisis, able to have staff and supplies on the ground within 72 hours.
 
Our emergency response mechanisms include contingency planning, mobilising global stockpiles of relief items and the immediate deployment of teams of trained personnel.
 
Ongoing Care

UNHCR aims to improve the quality of life of all people in its care, including the long-term displaced.

This includes providing special protection services for women and children, and ensuring all refugees access to healthcare and safe shelter. UNHCR also coordinates education and livelihood programs to help people develop the skills they need to achieve self-reliance and maintain hope and dignity.
