There are 60 million refugees in the world. Refugees typically cannot get bank accounts. They often do not have valid ID and banks won't give them accounts because they are too poor. Not having a bank account means refugees have fewer choices and no financial security. We are launching the world's first Refugee Bank, a digital bank for all refugees to bring financial inclusion to refugees.
60 Million Refugees - No Bank Accounts
Every year, there are over 15 million new refugees, fleeing war and persecution who leave behind bank accounts they can no longer access. Refugees can’t open bank accounts in new countries because they lack ID and banks consider them to be too poor.
We are creating a digital Refugee Bank to help refugees get bank accounts so they can cash pay cheques, buy food and shelter, receive money, buy school supplies to send their children to school and re-establish their lives. Without bank accounts, refugees cannot get debit or credit cards, easily send or receive money, or buy Internet access to connect to families they left behind. Think about your life without a bank account.
Just $1 Each Can Make a Difference
We are launching a fundraising drive called "Give $1 for Refugees" with a social media advertising campaign. If every person gave $1, or £1, or €1, we would have enough money for a Refugee Bank. All of us togeher can make a difference.
Every Trip to Refugee Camps Will Bank Many Refugees
We need to run ad campaigns and reach refugees around the world in many different languages. Every ad we run and every trip we can take to connect with refugees in conflict zones, will help us reach more people in need to build the Refugee Bank. We need your donation so that we can begin to improve the lives of refugees.
Please support us now by donating to our campaign.
Refugees need people like you to help make it happen.
