UNHCR in 2021

COVID-19 has demonstrated that pandemics, like the climate emergency, poverty and inequality, and conflicts and forced displacement, require a collective effort to respond and to support those affected.
UNHCR remains on the ground, working on behalf of people of concern around the world.
But despite decades of experience, the coronavirus emergency has been unlike any seen throughout UNHCR’s 70-year history. Never has every UNHCR office and operation faced a crisis of this magnitude—all at the same time.
UNHCR’s primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees. In its efforts to achieve this objective, the Office strives to ensure that everyone can exercise the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another State, and to return home voluntarily. By assisting refugees to return to their own country or to settle permanently in another country, UNHCR also seeks lasting solutions to their plight.
Our operations include safeguard fundamental rights, respond with life-saving support and to build better futures.

To everyone who donated to UNHCR this year, I would like to thank you for your support. Your support allowed us to stay in the field to protect refugees, to deliver services, to support local communities and everything contributing to contend with Coronavirus.
