Refugees International was started in 1979 as a citizens’ movement to protect Indochinese refugees. Since then, the organization has expanded to become the leading advocacy organization that provokes action from global leaders to resolve refugee crises.
Each year, Refugees International conducts 20 to 25 field missions to identify displaced people’s needs for basic services such as food, water, health care, housing, access to education and protection from harm. Based on their field-based knowledge of humanitarian emergencies, they successfully challenge policy makers and aid agencies to improve the lives of displaced people around the world.
