The United Nations High Commissioner For Refugees

In 1981, the UNHCR received another award for their longtime worldwide aid to refugees, along with the praise for performing amidst the political obstacles the organization faced. The UNCHR grew from only 34 staff members when it was first founded, and they now have a staff of 6,650 national and international members, including 740 members in their headquarters in Geneva. The agency works in 118 countries, with offices in 108 main locations and 151 sub-offices and field offices.
