Today, there are more than 60 million refugees in the world. 60 million people who have been forced to leave their homes in order to survive.
For some this means a long, hard, journey to wards Europe in hope of a better life free of conflict, violence and persecution.
The numbers are staggering and the need for help is ever growing.
Wherever there are people in need, the Red Cross is there to help.
Please help us bring hot food, medical care and warmth to the people waiting at borders and in camps.
