A Collaboration Rooted in Shared Values
Created in 1950 by the United Nations General Assembly, UNHCR’s work aims to guarantee the right to seek asylum and to find a safe haven for anyone who has had to flee violence, persecution, war or disaster in their country.
Since its creation, the organization has faced multiple crises on several continents and has provided vital assistance to refugees, asylum seekers, internally displaced persons and stateless persons who have no one to turn to. (source)
