Unto Providing Lifesaving Support to Displaced People

“By the end of 2024, we expect more displaced people than ever recorded in history.” – Al Goff, Unto President and CEO



ORLANDO, FL June 12, 2024 — Approximately 110 million people worldwide are forcibly displaced, with 36.4 million being refugees.* On World Refugee Day, June 20, individuals and organizations around the world will demonstrate solidarity with those who have been forced to flee from their home countries due to war, violent conflict, human rights violations, oppression and persecution.

“We have the opportunity to tangibly meet the critical physical needs of people experiencing this crisis firsthand and help give them a chance to encounter hope,” said Al Goff, president and CEO of Unto.

A global humanitarian organization, Unto is responding to the growing refugee crisis by distributing Refugee Hope Kits filled with essential items, such as food, water filters, clothing, and hygiene and medical supplies. Each kit, which costs $40, is customized by local Cru staff to meet the specific needs of those they serve and is personally delivered to individuals in critical need who are struggling to survive.

It is estimated that more than half of all refugees originate from just three countries: Syria, Afghanistan and Ukraine. Of the 110 million forcibly displaced people worldwide, an estimated 43.3 million are children.* A ministry of Cru, Unto provides humanitarian aid to people living in the toughest places on Earth by relieving suffering, restoring dignity and revealing hope.
