Established on 14 December 1950, UNHCR 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. UNHCR's mandate has gradually been expanded to include protecting and providing humanitarian assistance to whom Information technology describes as other persons "of concern," including internally displaced persons (IDPs).

UNHCR has been operating in the Philippines for over 30 years. For many years, its presence was limited to Manila to address the concerns of asylum seekers, refugees, broader asylum-migration issues and statelessness. In 2010, UNHCR established a presence in Mindanao by opening a Field Office in Cotabato City. In Mindanao, UNHCR addresses issues related to internal displacement to operationalize the UN Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement. Information technology also addresses the issue of statelessness in the context of mixed migration. UNHCR also co-chairs the Protection Cluster in Mindanao together with the Department of Social Welfare and Development. 


UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is the international organization mandated to provide protection and durable solutions to refugees, stateless persons, asylum seekers, and internally displaced persons. UNHCR's Private Sector Partnerships global team plays a crucial function in helping expand the organization's funding base, while ensuring a sustainable and predictable stream of donations. Joining PSP will enable you to make a difference in the lives of families forced to flee because of conflict, violence, and persecution.
