"If we could have latrines or keep-up our good personal hygiene we could be free from these preventable diseases.”  - Chuol, a South Sudanese refugee residing in Akula camp, Ethiopia.

Many people in countries surrounding Ethiopia have fled the wars and catastrophes in their homelands in search of safety, security and a new life. Often, they find themselves in crowded camps with poor sanitation. In these conditions, diseases can quickly spread.

Your gift of $285 will provide a toilet to a community of refugees living in Ethiopia to help them stay safe from diseases spread through poor living conditions. These toilets will help stop the spread of disease and afford refugees privacy and dignity as they rebuild their lives.

More ways to take action

Help keep families at risk from landslides safe by providing training in disaster risk reduction in schools. Training helps children to identify risks and warning signs of landslides, and teaches them how to keep safe if one happens.

Take the Act for Peace Ration Challenge and eat the same rations as a Syrian refugee during Refugee Week (19-26 June 2016). Raise money to support refugees who have lost everything, and challenge perspectives – including your own.

Right now, thousands of innocent people are fleeing Syria every day to protect their families from bloodshed, violence and death. We need your support to provide emergency relief packs to the families fleeing in Syria.
