United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR Greece)
The UN High Commissioner for Refugees was established on 14 December 1950, based in Geneva, Switzerland, by the UN General Assembly, mandated to guide and coordinate international action on the protection of refugees and the search for viable solutions. Its main concern is to ensure that everyone has the right to seek asylum and find security in another country, with the prospect of finding viable solutions such as voluntary repatriation, joining the country of asylum or resettlement in a third country.
Since its inception, UNHCR has been protecting rights and providing meaningful assistance to refugees, asylum seekers, internally displaced persons and stateless persons. It has helped millions of people successfully resume their lives and has been honored twice with the Nobel Peace Prize in 1954 and 1981.
With UNHCR, their main concern is to ensure that everyone has the right to seek asylum and to find security in another country, with the prospect of returning to his home country, if possible, to join in the country of asylum or resettled in a third country.
As long as a situation of displacement evolves, they offer crucial emergency assistance by providing access to clean water, sanitation and medical care. At the same time, they provide accommodation, blankets, household items and sometimes food.
They also support transportation and offer help packages to people returning home. They are still implementing revenue generating programs for those resettled in third countries.
With their help, people who have seen their lives dissolve can make a fresh start.See more
