Rotary has a passion for service and has a range of areas of focus, from promoting peace, fighting disease, supporting education and growing local economies.

UNHCR has similar aims and promotes these focus areas throughout our day-to-day activities. UNHCR’s mandate is to aid and protect people that are forced to flee their homes due to violence, conflict and persecution. To achieve this objective, UNHCR employs 9,700 people and works in 126 countries to provide on-the-ground assistance in emergency and refugee situations. Through this presence in host countries and transit refugee camps and cooperation with various stakeholders, we promote peace every step of the way as refugees flee violence and look to resettle.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions.
