About this cause

About our cause

The UN Refugee Agency, UNHCR, was established in 1950 by the United Nations General Assembly to provide protection and assistance to refugees worldwide.

Today, UNHCR is one of the world's principal humanitarian agencies, helping more than 36 million people in 116 countries, providing the world's most vulnerable people with safety and coordinating access to food, shelter, clean water, medical care and basic education.

When possible, UNHCR helps refugees and other displaced people return to their homes voluntarily, safely and with dignity. When return is not possible, the agency assists with local integration or resettlement to a third country.

UNHCR is almost entirely funded by voluntary contributions - donated by governments, organizations, and caring individuals.

During its half century of work, the agency has provided assistance to more than 50 million people worldwide, earning two Nobel Peace Prizes in 1954 and 1981.
