Refugee Relief

Every minute, 20 people leave everything behind to escape war, persecution, or terror. Over 70 million people worldwide are forcibly displaced – they are either refugees, internally displaced people (IDPs), asylum seekers, stateless people, or returnees. That means, 1 in 113 people on earth are fitting into one of these categories. Among them are nearly 30 million refugees, over half of whom are under the age of 18. 

Wars, conflicts, religious or political persecution, and human rights violations force people to flee their homes and communities to start a new life free of persecution and fear. Often starting a new life with nothing but the clothes on their backs, these refugees struggle to receive even basic human rights. 

The pandemic has tested our strength and highlighted systematic inequalities. It has also connected us in new ways and renewed our motivation to act for equality.

NOTICE: We are now instructed to stay at home because of COVID-19. However, refugees are not privileged to do social distancing because they are crammed in overcrowded, unsanitary camps. You can help refugees get enough food, housing, and hygienic supplies by contributing $25 today!

Our Impact

Embrace Relief, together with the help of all of our donors, has been organizing campaigns to help millions of refugees in different countries like Syria and Greece. Since 2013, we have given relief to over 1.4 million Syrian refugees. To this day, 29 containers of relief goods were delivered to Syrian refugees in need, and a soup kitchen serving hot meals to up to 4,000 refugees in the border town of Kilis, Turkey. We were also able to provide shelter, food, clean water, and translators to Greek refugees that helped their arrival go as smoothly as possible.  We also have implemented virtual English speaking classes (ESL) for refugees to learn how to communicate in a new land. 

There have been over six years of armed conflict in Syria that has forced more than half of the country’s 22 million citizens to flee their homes. Over 5.6 million of those people left for neighboring countries, and more than 6.2 million people are displaced internally. Furthermore, there are approximately 80,000 refugees currently placed into overcrowded and unsanitary refugee camps meant to hold only 6,200 people in Greece.

Similarly, Embrace Relief has been working with local and national organizations in the U.S. to help acclimate incoming refugees to the U.S. and assisting families who have recently arrived in the country with guidance and material support.
