The number of people displaced by war, conflict or persecution reached a record high of nearly 65 million around the world in 2017, a UN report says. Around 65 million of people are forced to leave their home and look for a place where they can stay and be safe. The sad fact is that more than half of these refugees are children. This people don’t leave their home by choice, but they are forced to leave and to find a better place. According to the United Nations Refugee Agency, 34,000 people every day or about 24 people per minute are forced to flee their homes due to conflict and violence. This refugees are part of the global community and they need our help.
Many refugees are becoming victims of human tracking and smuggling and risking their lives travelling on dangerous trucks, trains and boats to seek safety in neighbouring countries. As a result, refugee camps are becoming more overcrowded and finding it hard to meet the needs of refugees. Aside from this, refugee camps also don’t have the space and the facilities needed to give children a safe place to play and learn.
GoFundCause aims to bring supporters around the world together to help refugees and families displaced from their homes live a better life. We understand that no single group can deal with this crisis alone, but we can help create a better future for everyone by working together. We provide interested individuals with a chance to collectively act and take action to address the needs of refugees and prepare for the challenges they will face in the next months and years ahead.
We implement a broad due diligence process to distribute funds properly. We first conduct extensive research to determine the needs, both mid-term and long-term, of refugees. This includes having discussions with our advisory council, donors and various service providers. A team composed of subject matter and field experts reviews the needs of refugees and determines where and how to allocate the funds.
