The UN Refugee Agency

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 more than 36 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 6,650 people, the agency is the lead humanitarian organization on the scene in 126 countries around the world.
