110 MILLION PEOPLE LIKE YOU ARE CURRENTLY DISPLACED

Update: Any donation you make from today will be doubled up to the amount of $150,000 by generous supporters. This means your donation will go twice as far to help protect the lives and rights of refugees and asylum seekers.

Update 15/05/24: The Federal Government has delivered its annual budget. We were disappointed to see the Labor government abandon its pre-election promises to raise the humanitarian intake to at least 27,000 places per annum. This was the time for the Government to deliver on its promises and moral obligations; to address the humanitarian disasters not only in our region but around the world. They failed. Our work has never been more urgent or crucial than now. Please donate today.

A staggering 110 million people are currently displaced. People are forced to leave everything they’ve worked for and flee for their lives. To become ‘refugees’, ‘people seeking asylum’, or ‘displaced persons’ – dehumanising labels that make it easy to forget these are real people, no different to us.

“We long for a safe place, where we can establish ourselves and stand on our own feet.” 

– Member of the Rohingya youth forum, Cox’s Bazaar.

Providing safety to more people seeking asylum is one of the most important things Australia can do right now. 

With the number of people in urgent need of resettlement growing every day due to unprecedented global crises - in countries like Syria, Afghanistan, Myanmar, Ukraine and now the Occupied Palestinian Territories - we need to take a leadership role in creating solutions within our region, and significantly increase the number of people we welcome through our humanitarian program.

We must raise our collective voices and demand our government increase Australia’s humanitarian intake to 40,000 –  including 10,000 places through the community sponsorship program. 

Every moment counts. With your help, Amnesty can continue to fight for fair treatment of refugees looking to Australia for help.

HOW MATCHED GIVING WORKS

Funding for this matched giving campaign has been provided by a group of generous donors who have agreed to match supporter donations to Amnesty International Australia. These donors have chosen to remain anonymous and not be acknowledged by Amnesty International Australia through its communications. 

  • Donations will be matched up to the amount of $150,000.
  • Once donations to this campaign exceed $150,000, the matched giving campaign will be stopped. Donations made over $150,000  will not be matched. This page will be updated to advise once the matched giving amount is reached.
  • In unforeseeable circumstances that mean the matched giving donor cannot fulfil their commitment, we will make reasonable efforts to contact those who have donated during the campaign.
  • Amnesty International Australia reserves the right to amend, extend or stop the campaign based on operational needs and compliance with applicable regulations.
