UNHCR's picture

UNHCR 

The UN Refugee Agency was established in 1950 by the United Nations General Assembly. From its first major crisis in the form of the Hungarian Revolution of 1956, to the current conflicts in the Horn of Africa and the Middle East, UNHCR has outgrown its initial three-year mandate to become a central pillar of humanitarian protection. Awarded two Nobel Peace Prizes, in 1954 and 1981, for efforts to help refugees, UNHCR now assists not just refugees who have been forcibly displaced across borders but people internally displaced by conflict, as well as many of the world's stateless people. Working in 126 countries to assist more than 33 million people of concern, UNHCR is today more active than ever, acutely aware that the humanitarian cause it works for is unlikely to disappear any time soon.
