9780027263350: United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (Organizations That Help the World)

This short series of six volumes is designed to help young people understand the vital role of organisations like the Red Cross and the World Wide Fund for Nature in their struggles to create a better world. Illustrated in full colour throughout in many cases from the archives of the organisations concerned, these will be lively, authoritative books that will help young people to grow up as caring members of society. Scared, starving and in fear of losing their lives, millions of people flee from their homelands, each one becoming `another' refugee. Working in extreme conditions, bargaining with governments and countries at war, the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, the UNHCR, strives against the odds to provide international protection for refugees; fulfilling their immediate needs for shelter, food and water to keep them alive and safe, while working to achieve a long term solution to the plight of these people. In the face of a growing problem, heightened in Europe after World War 1, the then League of Nations took action. In 1921 the Arctic explorer, Fridtjot Nansen, was appointed first High Commissioner for Refugees. Originally set up as a temporary organization, UNRCR is still working today - facing an ever growing number of refugees - as mankind commits atrocities against one another.
