The UN Refugee Agency supports the UN Refugee Agency’s humanitarian work to protect and assist refugees around the world. We strive to meet the needs of the world’s most vulnerable people, building support and awareness for UNHCR’s life-saving relief programs.
The UN Refugee Agency – a two-time Nobel Peace Prize winner – provides protection, shelter, emergency food, water, medical care and other life-saving assistance to 32 million people worldwide, who have been forced to flee their homes due to war and persecution. When possible, UNHCR helps refugees and other displaced people return to their homes voluntarily, safely, and with dignity.
Since its formation by the United Nations General Assembly on December 14, 1950, UNHCR has helped an estimated 50 million refugees restart their lives. Today, with a staff of more than 6,300 people, the agency is the lead humanitarian organization on the scene in 117 countries around the world.
