UN Refugee Aid Christmas campaign provides a roof over the head

Just one minute – and you can help and save lives, says the UN Refugee Aid. For many of the currently 65 million refugees worldwide, this is especially important right now. The upcoming winter months are an additional threat to them. Give the gift of protection!, is how the UN Refugee Aid calls for donations nationwide and we support their fund-raising campaign.

It addresses first-time and repeat donors, multipliers from politics and the media as well as large companies. Since the beginning of November, we’ve been communicating the message, along with our sister agencies DIEONLINEFABRIK and DIEPOSTERFABRIK. We show the powerful motifs on billboards all over Germany. This way, as well as precisely placed on the web and with ads in magazines and national newspapers, they point out who needs help, and how easy it is to give help. Anyone who’d like to take action right away will find inserts with donation forms in various print media or a donation button online.

The UN Refugee Aid is a partner of the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR). For many of the nearly 15 million Syrian and Iraqi refugees in the crisis regions alone, this seventh consecutive winter will be a struggle for survival, explains Peter Ruhenstroth-Bauer, Managing Director of the UN Refugee Aid: „Because of the extreme cold, snow and heavy rains they have to live in tents and emergency shelters (…).“ The UN and UNHCR can not handle the cost of 42 Euros per tent by themselves and need help. If everyone donates a little, many are helped. It doesn’t take more than a minute.
