We are happy to announce a new member to the Fleet Forum team!
Who is the Norwegian Refugee Council? The Norwegian Refugee Council is an independent humanitarian organisation helping people forced to flee. They work in crises in more than 30 countries, where they help save lives and rebuild futures.
NRC delivers high-quality aid where needs are greatest. When they started relief efforts after World War II, humanitarian needs were critical. They still are – and NRC is still there, protecting people forced to flee and supporting them as they build a new future. Today, they work in both new and protracted crises across more than 30 countries, where they provide camp management, food assistance, clean water, shelter, legal aid, and education.
Stand up for people forced to flee. NRC is a determined advocate for displaced people. When they witness injustices, they alert the world. NRC promotes and defend displaced people's rights and dignity in local communities, with national governments and in the international arena. NRC’s Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre in Geneva is a global leader in monitoring, reporting on and advocating for people displaced within their own country.
Quick response to emergencies. NRC's global provider of expertise, NORCAP, the world’s most used, boasts around 1,000 experts from all over the world. Experts stand ready to deploy at a moment’s notice to support the UN and local authorities in humanitarian crises.
Around 14,000 humanitarians work with the Norwegian Refugee Council. Most are hired locally to work in the field, and a small number are based at our head office in Oslo. Many of the colleagues were once themselves fleeing their homes.
Today, a record 70.8 million people are fleeing war and persecution. Not since World War Two have more people needed our help. The Norwegian Refugee Council assisted over 8.5 million people worldwide in 2018, and with your support, they can help even more.
