No one chooses to be a refugee.
We defend the rights of those who are forced to flee and support them in new beginnings in Finland and abroad.
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.
We work to ensure that refugees and migrants are equal and contributing members of their societies and their rights are respected.
