There are many worthy causes but it's best to donate where the need is greatest.
If you're looking for a specific cause to donate toward, I suggest giving to urgently alleviate the worsening Syrian refugee crisis, said to be the worst since the 1994 Rwanda genocide, making Syria the UN's largest appeal in history.
Another major crisis is hitting at least 800,000 Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar (Burma), where violent persecution by the state and a lack of political will around the world has left many facing homelessness, hunger, and worse.
Below are a few groups that have extensive experience dealing with crises and that are already established and operating in affected areas.
