A deadly volcanic eruption in the northern Democratic Republic of the Congo has left thousands of people homeless.

This devastating occurrence comes on top of an already tragic humanitarian emergency in the country. Over 2 million people who have displaced by brutal conflict and violence live in the affected area, including more than 450,000 forced to flee this year alone.

This latest disaster could push this vulnerable community to breaking point if we do not act today.

UNHCR is on the ground working to identify the most urgent needs of those affected. But with fears of another eruption on the horizon, the people of DRC urgently need your help in order to survive.

UK for UNHCR is the UN Refugee Agency’s national partner for the United Kingdom. We’re working to provide the essentials refugees need to survive; shelter, food, water, healthcare and protection. We can only do this with your help.
