UNHCR is often first in and last out during humanitarian emergencies, providing life-saving assistance and care to the people who need it most.
Supplies are warehoused in seven strategic hubs – Accra, Amman, Copenhagen, Douala, Dubai, Nairobi and Panama – to enable immediate transit anywhere in the world.
UNHCR staff cover every angle of emergency response, from establishing camps in safe zones, to installing water and sanitation, to coordinating emergency airlifts, to protecting the most vulnerable, including women and children.
Some of the key humanitarian emergencies that UNHCR are responding to are below:
