There are 110 million displaced persons in the world today

The Finnish Refugee Council is Finland’s largest expert organisation specialising in the issues of forced displacement and migration. Each year, we support thousands of people in recovering from conflicts and integrating into new societies. For over 50 years our work has positively impacted lives in Finland, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and Europe.

Everyday 25,000 people are forced to flee their homes.

With our help, we can support them and give them hope for a better future.

ABOUT US

We advocate and protect the rights of those who have fled and strengthen their chance to survive, thrive and build peace.
