Who We Help

UNHCR helps millions of people every year whose lives
have been turned upside down by crisis. Whenever and
wherever people are uprooted by conflict UNHCR is there
offering life-saving assistance, safeguarding their rights
and restoring hope, safety and dignity.

Refugees have done more for my heart and my spirit than I can ever express in words.
