Established in December 1950, the UN Agency for Refugees (UNHCR, aka ACNUR) is mandated to lead and coordinate international action to protect and assist refugees. In more than five decades, UNHCR has helped more than 68 million people restart their lives. Today, UNCHR staff in more than 130 countries continue to help and protect millions of refugees, returnees, internally displaced and stateless people.
