The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) leads and co-ordinates international relief to protect refugees and resolve refugee problems worldwide. Its primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees and in more than five decades, the agency has helped people restart their lives. Today, a staff of around 6,650 people in more than 110 countries continues to help 34.4 million people. While some say the United Nations should be abolished, it’s important to remember that the UNHCR’s work is essential in protecting the rights and dignity of those who are forced from their homes and their country.
