UN's Humanitarian Agency Provides Relief to Refugees Around the World

As a humanitarian, non-political organization, UNHCR has two basic aims: to protect refugees and to seek ways to help them restart their lives in a normal environment. UNHCR promotes international refugee agreements, seeks long-term solutions, and provides emergency relief. The agency coordinates the provision and delivery of shelter, food, water, sanitation, and medical care for refugees.

If you would like to send a contribution to help refugees, please make checks payable to USA for UNHCR and mail to the above address.
