Take Action

Together we can make a difference.

Currently JRS serves one in every hundred displaced people in the world. You too can play a part in the JRS story. You can support refugees by learning more about them, and telling their story. You can participate in JRS campaigns, by doing one thing for a refugee, and encouraging other to do the same on social media. You can support our work financially by donating money, and by letting others know about our work. Do one thing, and be part of our story.

Hope for refugees begins with you

Pope Francis encourages each one of us to act to bring hope to refugees. Solidarity is not just an ideal, but is expressed in concrete actions and steps that draw us closer to our neighbours, in whatever situation they find themselves. At the Jesuit Refugee Service, we believe that we can all #Do1Thing to welcome, protect, promote, and integrate refugees in their communities.

We can all #Do1Thing

A single individual is enough for hope to exist.

Support Refugees

Thanks to the support of partners, JRS can maintain the capacity to run its global operations ensuring provision of educational services, psychosocial care and humanitarian assistance to 640,000 forcibly displaced people.

It does not matter how little you can afford to give: every single cent counts, and goes towards making a lasting difference in the lives of refugees.


Without the partnership of Institutional Donors JRS could not maintain the capacity to continue running its global operations.


Your major gift will allow us to reach those most in need, and will have a lasting impact on the lives of many refugees.
