Help Refugees isn’t just another NGO. Find out what makes us unique – and how you can get involved.

We provide aid and uphold dignity for refugees. We are the biggest facilitator of grassroots humanitarian aid on the continent with more than 80 projects across Europe and the Middle East.

We are Help Refugees. We always want our impact to be positive and will always work towards making it this way. We strive to ensure that we do no harm to those whose lives we touch. Our aim is that those we assist are able to say that their lives (and prospects) have been improved by permitting us to assist them, by bringing them dignity, hope, respect and humanity.

Mission Statement

We will remain flexible and fast in our response to the genuine needs of refugees, filling gaps and acting where big NGOs and governments don’t.
