LuQuLuQu is

a social movement that was created in November 2017 by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to transform public perceptions of the African refugee.

We strive to shed light on the incredible resilience refugees demonstrate. We invite you the best among us- the caring, the generous- to join the movement and lead the effort to empower our displaced brothers and sisters to reach their full potential.

The LuQuLuQu movement takes ownership of shaping the narrative of Africa’s displaced, and drives individual contributions toward supporting the refugee cause. 


Every morning, more than 24.2 million Africans wake up knowing that the roof above their head and the floor beneath their feet is not a place they can call home.

In spite of that, they thrive.
Heed the LuQuLuQu call to action! Join us to help them bloom.


Millions of Africa’s displaced- our brothers and sisters- are counting on the LuQuLuQu movement:
A social movement that actively seeks to rally the best of us as a global community speaking for inclusion of the displaced.

LuQuLuQu needs you, let’s inspire our displaced brothers and sisters to reach their full potential.
