The UN is Helping Out Refugees!:-)

The UN (United Nations) is one of the major groups that help refugees in Africa. In more than five decades, the agency has helped an estimated 50 million people. Today, a staff of around 6,300 people in more than 110 countries continues to help 32.9 million people/refugees!!! UNHCR raises funds through governments, foundations and private donors so that refugees can be assisted immediately with food, shelter and other essentials distributed by the agency's implementing NGO partners. Longer-term solutions also depend on the participation of civil society and refugees themselves. How can you help?!?!?
