The military offensive in Ukraine has driven many thousands of people from their homes seeking safety, protection and assistance. An estimated 4 million people may flee Ukraine in the coming weeks and months. In light of the emergency, an inter-agency regional refugee response is being carried out that brings together UN, NGO and other relevant partners and primarily focuses on supporting the host country governments to ensure safe access to territory for refugees and third-country nationals fleeing from Ukraine, in line with international standards.
The Refugees Operational Portal is a Partners coordination tool for Refugee situations provided by UNHCR. It is a detailed and searchable portal with up-to-date information on refugee situations around the world, including interactive maps, facts and figures.
In addition the Portal provides links to relevant reports, regional and thematic overview documents, monthly updates and news by country situation and by region, including the Mediterranean Situation. The data includes figures such as sea arrivals by day and most common nationalities of sea arrivals.
UNHCR Cyprus launched in October 2017 an online information platform for refugees and asylum-seekers living on the island. A mobile-friendly website that is accessible at http://help.unhcr.org/cyprus, the “HELP” platform seeks to serve as a one-stop information shop, offering comprehensive, accurate and objective information that is essential for refugees and asylum-seekers in Cyprus. The Help platform is updated on a regular basis.
We hope that through this user-friendly platform we can adequately inform and empower as many people as possible in their efforts to adapt to and integrate into the social, economic and cultural fabric of the host society.
