Lead the Way on Migration

Conflict and persecution around the globe have forced millions of individuals to flee for their lives. More than 70 million people are displaced globally and are seeking asylum or safe shelter within their own country or other countries. In overcrowded refugee settlements, it’s nearly impossible to social distance, making these communities more vulnerable to the spread of COVID-19.

CRS believes all people deserve safe housing, basic healthcare, and necessities like soap and clean water. We’re leading the way in providing refugees with lifesaving basic necessities such as food, water and shelter. Together, we can do even more. We can—and must—do more.
