The Norwegian Refugee Council is an independent humanitarian organisation helping people forced to flee. We work in crises in 31 countries, where we help save lives and rebuild futures.

We deliver high-quality aid where needs are greatest. When we started our relief efforts after World War II, humanitarian needs were critical. They still are – and we’re still there, protecting people forced to flee and supporting them as they build a new future. Today, we work in both new and protracted crises across 31 countries, where we provide camp managementfood assistanceclean watershelterlegal aid, and education.

We stand up for people forced to flee. NRC is a determined advocate for displaced people. When we witness injustices, we alert the world. We promote and defend displaced people’s rights and dignity in local communities, with national governments and in the international arena. NRC’s Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre in Geneva is a global leader in monitoring, reporting on and advocating for people displaced within their own country.

We respond quickly to emergencies. NRC’s global provider of expertise, NORCAP, the world’s most used, boasts around 1,000 experts from all over the world. Our experts stand ready to deploy at a moment’s notice to support the UN and local authorities in humanitarian crises.

Around 14,000 humanitarians work with the Norwegian Refugee Council. Most of us are hired locally to work in the field, and a small number are based at our head office in Oslo. Many of our colleagues were once themselves fleeing their homes.

Today, a record 68.5 million people are fleeing war and persecution. Not since World War Two have more people needed our help. The Norwegian Refugee Council assisted over 8.5 million people worldwide in 2018, and with your support, we can help even more.
