We are a global organization that has a core duty to protect people who are forcibly displaced due to violence, persecution, war or disaster at home. Our job is to save lives and build better futures for millions of people who lost everything.
To protect and support people of concern, UNHCR provides protection, shelter and emergency relief in addition to ongoing humanitarian aid through long term programmes covering health, education, livelihood support, cash-based intervention and skills training.
We strive to ensure that everyone has the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge.
During times of displacement, we provide critical emergency assistance.
We also arrange transport and assistance packages for people who return home, and income-generating projects for those who resettle.
