Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between a refugee, an internally displaced person, and a migrant?
The U.N. defines a refugee as someone who has been forced to flee his country because of persecution, war, or violence. An internally displaced person (IDP) is someone who has fled his home but is still living in the same country, often in a refugee camp. A migrant is anyone who changes his home country for any reason.

If conflict has ended where they live, why haven’t refugees returned home?
While much of the fighting in places like Iraq is less intense than it was a year or two ago, the refugee crisis is certainly not over. Families have nothing to return to. Their homes, schools, businesses, and entire communities have been reduced to rubble. Families want to return home and rebuild, but it will be some time until these cities are inhabitable again.

Why can’t refugees’ countries help them? Why do they need our help?
The biggest problem is that violence, famine, and other causes of the refugee crisis don’t just destroy people’s homes. They destroy crops, businesses, and entire industries. They cause a nation’s economy to collapse and throw the government into chaos. Although many countries try to care for their displaced, they simply do not have the means.

How does my $35 provide $189 worth of food and aid?
Your gift is combined with grants and relief supplies donated by generous corporations to provide the greatest amount of aid possible. That means every dollar you give goes further and rescues more people with help for today and hope for tomorrow.

What supplies do refugees need the most?
The most urgent needs are food, clean water, and medicine. In some camps, a refugee family’s monthly ration of food lasts only two weeks. Community water sources are often contaminated. And living in crowded conditions means disease spreads quickly. If left untreated, simple illnesses can quickly turn deadly. Your donation can literally save lives.
