From a hashtag to a global movement

We are a refugee charity with minimal overheads and maximum impact. No highly-paid executives. No big fundraising budgets. In just three years, we’ve grown from a social media campaign into a global movement that has helped three quarters of a million people.

We’re a pioneering charity leading a
new movement in humanitarian aid.

Help Refugees is not simply another aid organisation. We’re a group of everyday people, taking joint action to improve lives of refugees. In less than two years, we’ve become the biggest facilitator of grassroots aid on the continent, with more than 80 projects across Europe and the Middle East.
