About the Night of the Refugee

The Night of the Refugee is an fundraising walk with various routes, challenging kilometers and a strong feeling of solidarity amoungst the thousands of participants and volunteers.You can register individually, but also join as a team with your family, friends, company or school. During the Night, refugees with their own stories and various organizations related with this topic also participate. This often leads to great encounters and conversations along the way.

The Netherlands Refugee Foundationtion

The Netherlands Refugee Foundation (Stichting Vluchteling) is organizing the Night of the Refugee since 2010 to bring awareness about the humanitarian crises in the world. Through this event we show that we care about refugees worldwide and aim to raise as much money as possible for The Netherlands Refugee Foundation and its local partners so they can provide life-saving emergency aid.

Edition 2023

Last year we walked 15 routes in ten cities with 5500 participants. Together, with more than 45.000 sponsors we raised a fantastic amount of more than 1.3. million euros! This allowed The Netherlands Refugee Foundation to give Sudanese refugees access to clean (drinking) water and sanitary facilities. We also provided emergency aid packages for people who had to flee the earthquake in Turkey and Syria and provided support with nutrition in Ethiopia and Burkina Faso. Want to know more about this? At the bottom of this page you can find information from the past three editions.
