Refuge Network International is a non-profit humanitarian organisation whose mission is to fight against social injustices, empower the marginalized, and alleviate human suffering principally through the promotion of Economic and Social Rights (ESR) in pragmatic and innovative ways.
We are a network of three non-profit organisations comprising Refuge Network, No Poverty Campaign, and Charity Across Borders. We work with the homeless, victims of human trafficking, refugees, individuals living in abject poverty, and other marginalized groups.
With the dedication of our volunteers, staff, and partners, we strive to improve the lives of the needy. Contact us to see what you can do to bring about positive change.

RNI MEDIA CAMPAIGN
Documenting Social Injustices,
Making Invisible People Visible,
Giving Voice to the Voiceless
Photography has played a significant role in advancing human rights. Images possess the potential to expose suffering, oppression and injustices. A picture can mobilise a thousand voices and attract an army of helpers to a just cause. Through our interviews, videos, and photographs, we strive to empower the marginalised by documenting social injustices, making invisible homeless people visible, and giving voice to marginalised communities. Everyone deserves to be heard. We are friends with homeless/disadvantaged people, many of whom are eager to tell their stories and express their opinions. Refuge Network faithfully documents these experiences. You will find them in pictures and videos on our media platforms. These images also reflect various aspects of our charitable work.
No one can survive or thrive without food, it is a basic human need. The right to adequate food is guaranteed in international law. Distressingly, over 8 million people in the UK are living in food poverty and struggling to eat. The socioeconomic impact of the pandemic is creating further hardship with thousands of people set to lose their jobs, homes, and businesses. In addition to the masses of suffering homeless people on the streets, many people on low or no income are struggling to eat or take care of basic needs. Our Soup kitchen and outreach programmes are targetted at these highly vulnerable members of our community. Our simple strategy is to identify and focus on the most desperate cases (those on the streets), while not ignoring others with less obvious needs.
