Here are some of the many examples of ongoing care supported by Australia for UNHCR:
UNHCR distributes cash assistance to particularly vulnerable refugees – giving people greater control over their lives.
Children make up over 40 per cent of the world’s displaced people. Together, we can help restore their futures.
Refugees leave behind their homes as well as their careers. UNHCR helps displaced people so they can support themselves with dignity.
Providing shelter is a core part of UNHCR’s protection mission. On cold nights or hot days, it could mean the difference between life and death.
With your support, UNHCR connects refugees with primary and secondary health care, including sexual and reproductive health, nutrition and mental health services.
