Home » Where We Work » Around The World

UNHCR works in more than 125 countries around the world. Our staff are based in some of the most isolated, volatile and challenging places in the world—reaching uprooted people most in need with critical humanitarian assistance.



Violence in Central African Republic continues to escalate and drive terrified families from their homes.


Violent attacks have created new waves of displacement—creating a need for even more resources.

South Sudan

Spiraling violence, conflict and a severe food shortage have endangered millions of lives in South Sudan.


Daily horrors and devastation at an unimaginable scale makes Syria the largest humanitarian emergency of our era.

When a crisis strikes, UNHCR is on the ground, saving lives, within 72 hours.

UNHCR is often the first to arrive and the last to leave in an emergency situation, supporting those forced to flee their homes through no fault of their own. In the aftermath of a crisis, UNHCR remains on the ground to help revive devastated communities and help displaced families return, recover and restart their lives.

UNHCR is with refugees at every stage of their journey—whenever and wherever needed. We set up refugee camps around the world, providing food aid, shelter and other basic living necessities.
