What We Do

Donors and advocates like you are making a lasting impact on the lives of refugees and displaced people around the world.


Emergency Relief Efforts

When violence erupts or war breaks out, life can change in a matter of minutes — forcing families and communities to flee. During refugee crises, UNHCR rushes in humanitarian aid and leads efforts to save lives and relieve suffering.

Cash Assistance

For vulnerable refugee families living outside of camps, cash assistance meets their needs in an effective, sustainable and dignified way.


Without the chance to study, an entire generation is at risk. More than half of the world’s refugees are under the age of 18. Without access to education, their future is in jeopardy.


There is no one-size-fits-all way to help refugees. As the world becomes increasingly complex, we must adapt to new systems, technologies and innovations to challenge the status quo.

Building Livelihoods

Opportunities to become self-sufficient, learn new skills and pursue economic opportunities are vital for refugees to rebuild their lives and once again become productive members of a community.

Resettlement in the U.S.
