Danish Refugee Council

The Danish Refugee Council assists refugees and internally displaced persons in 40 countries across the globe: we provide emergency aid, fight for their rights, and strengthen their opportunity for a brighter future. We work in conflict-affected areas, along the displacement routes, and in the countries where refugees settle. In cooperation with local communities, we strive for responsible and sustainable solutions. We work toward successful integration and – whenever possible – for the fulfilment of the wish to return home.

The Danish Refugee Council was founded in Denmark in 1956, and has since grown to become an international humanitarian organisation with more than 9,000 staff and 7,500 volunteers. Our vision is a dignified life for all displaced.
