Getting the Message Out

Use of media, traditional and new, is vital for UNHCR in Croatia in raising awareness, telling the story and getting our message out. The refugee agency provides a wide range of information about its activities, including press releases, media advisories, photo galleries, stories of human interest and regular updates on its website and Facebook pages.and provides regular statistical updates. UNHCR also publishes leaflets, brochures and other types of publications available also in electronic format. Timely and regular reports on our work and the people of concern to us play a vital role in keeping our staff, the public and donors informed – maintaining a high public profile is essential for an organization like UNHCR, which relies on the generosity of others for funding.
