UNHCR helps to save lives and build better futures for the millions of people forced to flee their homes.
UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency works to ensure that everybody has the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge, having fled violence, persecution, war or disaster at home.
Since 1950, we have faced multiple crises on multiple continents, and provided vital assistance to refugees, asylum-seekers, internally displaced and stateless people, many of whom have nobody left to turn to.

Key facts and figures
Intense fighting has broken out in Sudan, with reports of civilians killed and injured in multiple parts of the country.
Prices of food, fuel and other basic goods are reportedly skyrocketing, making critical goods unaffordable for many people. Despite attempts at ceasefires, people are being displaced amid the clashes and are fleeing to neighbouring countries like Chad and South Sudan, in urgent need of basic relief items and shelter.
UNHCR teams are on the ground to meet new arrivals and provide life-saving assistance. But as the fighting displaces more people, support is urgently needed to scale up the response.
