UNHCR offices in Brazil

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) provides aid to millions of people around the world who have been obligated to leave their country to save their lives. The agency promotes the protection of human rights and helps them to reconstruct their lives. UNHCR came into existence after the Second World War. Today, with a team of more than 7,500 people in over 125 countries, it helps around 34 million people worldwide. In Brazil, UNHCR supports the government as well as civil society organizations to strengthen the protection and integration of refugees, asylum seekers and stateless persons. UNHCR Brazil has offices in Brasília, Boa Vista, Manaus and São Paulo.
