What We Do in Malaysia

What We Do in Malaysia

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is mandated to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees and asylum-seekers worldwide. It strives to ensure that everyone can exercise the right to seek asylum in another country and rebuild their lives in safety and dignity.

UNHCR seeks long term solutions for refugees including finding hem new homes in third countries or helping them return home voluntarily when it is safe to do so.

While they are seeking temporary protection in Malaysia, UNHCR strives to create a safe and secure environment for them where their basic needs are met. UNHCR cooperates with its Government and civil society partners in humanitarian support for refugees including in education, healthcare and community support.
