Around The World
UNHCR works in 130 countries around the world, in 478 locations. 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.
When a crisis strikes, UNHCR is on the ground, saving lives, within 48 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.
