Miles4Migrants: Donate Miles. Reunite Families.

The global refugee crisis is one of this century’s greatest sources of societal suffering: over 79.5 million people have been displaced from their homes due to war, persecution and disaster. For refugees and asylum-seekers, persecution may be based on race, religion, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, political views and other factors. Persecution may come from governments, communities and even their own family. For these individuals, finding new homes in supportive communities is their greatest chance at living lives of freedom and safety.

Miles4Migrants uses donated airline miles, points and money to pay for the flights of those who are legally approved to travel but cannot afford the airfare. Since launching in 2016, we’ve used more than 53 million miles with a cash value of $1.3 million to fly more than 3,100 people from 61 countries of origin.

We partner with a global network of 45-plus+ nonprofit organizations, including IRC, RAICES, and HIAS, which verify the financial need and legal permissions required to fly individuals to their new homes.

In this time of reduced travel, when your miles and points may be going unused, use them to do good. Your United MileagePlus miles can help others reach a safe new home.
