UNHCR aims to improve the quality of life of all people in its care. This includes providing special protection services for women and children, and ensuring all refugees have access to healthcare and safe shelter. UNHCR also coordinates education and livelihood programs to help people develop the skills they need to achieve self-reliance and maintain hope and dignity. 

Here are some of the many examples of ongoing support provided by UNHCR:
