Most displaced people are living either in their own countries or as refugees in the countries nearest to them. Uganda is currently hosting more than a million South Sudanese refugees; Lebanon over a million Syrians; Bangladesh almost three quarters of a million – over half a million of whom have arrived within a very few weeks.
It’s vital to get resources to places where there is most need. Here are some organisations to which you can contribute in order to help. The links go directly to pages listing their appeals or work with refugees.
