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:
To ensure their rights and protection, UNHCR is working with national authorities, international and local organizations, and other partners to assist, protect and find solutions for unaccompanied and separated children.
We ensure refugees have what they need to survive—shelter, medical care, food, water and special protection and care for vulnerable children and women, including prevention and response to sexual violence.
At UNHCR, we work hard to ease women and girls’ struggles, ensuring safe shelters that offer privacy, assistance with construction or maintenance, fair food distribution systems and separate sanitation facilities.
Please help refugee families in need.
