UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency
UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, has provided lifesaving humanitarian support to millions of forcibly displaced people in Ukraine, several neighbouring countries and beyond. This includes support for the self-reliance of Rohingya women refugees in Bangladesh, which Fast Retailing, parent company of UNIQLO, is implementing with the UNHCR.
Save the Children
Donations are used to help ensure the world’s most vulnerable children survive, learn and are protected in some of the world’s toughest places to be a child, such as Ukraine and other conflict-affected regions. This includes educational support for displaced Syrian children and vulnerable Lebanese children in North Lebanon.
Donations go toward protecting girls and young women from harmful practices like child early and forced marriage and toward realizing a world where girls are respected, rather than exploited, and can make their own decisions about their life. Projects in relation to eliminating child early and forced marriage is going to be implemented in Vietnam by Plan International.
