About UNHCR

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees was established on December 14, 1950 by the United Nations General Assembly. The agency is mandated to lead and co-ordinate international action to protect refugees and resolve refugee problems worldwide. Its primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees. It strives to ensure that everyone can exercise the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another State, with the option to return home voluntarily, integrate locally or to resettle in a third country. It also has the mandate to help stateless people.

In more than six decades, the agency has helped tens of millions of people restart their lives

Working for UNHCR

UNHCR's staff are the backbone of the organization and about 89 percent of them are based in the field. UNHCR staff provides live-saving aid and protection every day for millions of uprooted and stateless people around the world. This is something that UNHCR staff takes great pride of, despite the many hardships they face while working in deep field operations, at times close to or within conflict areas. Their greatest reward is to know that their work has a major positive impact and brings hope to people uprooted by conflict and persecution.
