At the end of 2019, Germany reported almost 1.15 million refugees and 309 000 asylum seekers, making it the biggest host country for refugees in Europe. Half of the refugees are from Syria.

At the same time, Germany supports the worldwide work of UNHCR: for years, the country has been the second biggest bilateral donor after the US. U

NHCR in Germany is based in Berlin with a sub-office in Nuremberg. The latter, among other things, coordinates the work with the German Federal Authority for Migrants and Refugees (BAMF). The Berlin office is a liaison office with the German parliaments and governments – on the federal level and with the 16 states in Germany. The German office doesn’t work operationally with refugees but is constantly in contact with refugees all over Germany and supports various partner organisations. UNHCR’s national fundraising partner is the UNO-Flüchtlingshilfe in Bonn.
