Donate to UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency
Refugees are people just like you and me. Though they are faced with a grim choice - stay and die, or flee and risk imprisonment, sexual harassment, torture and forced recruitment by armed groups.
UNHCR is the only organization mandated to act as a safety net and protect over 80 million of the most vulnerable people in the world - which is why we need donors like you, to help us to reach one more child, one more family today.
Please give what you can and make a donation today.
How would you like to donate?
UNHCR – The UN Refugee agency : The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) was established on December 14, 1950 by the United Nations General Assembly. The agency is mandated to lead and co-ordinate international action to protect refugees and resolve their problems worldwide. On the following year on July 28th, the United Nations Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, the legal foundation of helping refugees and the basic statute guiding UNHCR’s work, was adopted.
The primary purpose of UNHCR is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees. It strives to ensure that everyone can exercise the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another State, with the option to return home voluntarily, integrate locally or to resettle in a third country. The agency also has a mandate to help stateless people.
In an effort to protect refugees and to promote solutions to their problems, UNHCR seeks to reduce situations of forced displacement by encouraging states and other institutions to create conditions which are conducive to the protection of human rights and the peaceful resolution of disputes. UNHCR works in partnership with governments, regional organizations, international and non-governmental organizations to achieve these objectives.
