Description : UNHCR: UNITED NATIONS REFUGEE AGENCY See: The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) was established on December 14, 1950 by the United Nations General Assembly. The agency is mandated to lead and co-ordinate international action to protect refugees and resolve refugee problems worldwide. Its primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees. It strives to ensure that everyone can exercise the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another State, with the option to return home voluntarily, integrate locally or to resettle in a third country. It also has a mandate to help stateless people. In more than six decades, the agency has helped tens of millions of people restart their lives. Today, a staff of some 7,685 people in more than 125 countries continues to help some 33.9 million persons. António Guterres, who joined UNHCR on June 15, 2005, is the UN refugee agency's 10th High Commissioner. The organization has come a long way since its launch in 1950, winning two Nobel Peace Prizes and helping millions around the world. Message of UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie on World Refugee Day 2012 Statement, 20 June 2012: UNHCR believes even 1 person forced to flee is too many. And it's true. Every individual refugee matters. Each has their own story. Each has suffered and survived more than I could ever bear. And yet, they rise up to live another day. We risk forgetting the individual when we speak in numbers, but the numbers tell an important story. In the past year 4.3 million people have become displaced. There are still 2.7 million refugees from Afghanistan. 12 million people are stateless. And for the fifth consecutive year the number of forcibly displaced people worldwide exceeded 42 million. Sadly, a person who becomes a refugee is likely to remain one for many years -- often stuck in a camp or living precariously in the city of a developing nation. 70 per cent of refugees under UNHCR's protection have been in this situation for more than five years. Their safety and well-being depend on the continued generosity of those countries who have kept their borders open to refugees, and on the vital efforts to deliver humanitarian assistance wherever and whenever it is necessary. Unfortunately, the world is producing displaced people faster than it is producing solutions to displacement. And the solutions are not exclusively humanitarian -- they are also political. The international community should rededicate itself to preventing conflict, addressing it when it erupts, and solving it more quickly, for that is the only way to create durable solutions for the refugees whose strength inspires us on this World Refugee Day. Angelina Jolie, 20th June 2012 Note: UNHCR is grateful to Ms. Jolie for a new donation made today of US$100,000 for our work in helping Syrian refugees ( UNITED NATIONS REFUGEE AGENCY: UNHCR ) See: MaximsNewsNetwork®™ & WorldLeadersTelevision™ News Network for the United Nations and the International Community™ "GIVING POWER & RESONANCE TO THE VOICE OF THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY" ™ See: See: ASIA100TVNet™ ASIATV100Net™ MAGNUMMAXIM™ TodaysNetworkNews™ WORLDMAGNUM™ GLOBALMAXIM™ TODAYSNETNEWS™ NewsNetworkToday™ NetworkNewsToday™
