Grupo VAPF, reacting towards the crisis of refugees that exists worldwide, is collaborating once again with the Spanish Commitee of UNHCR, the Agency UNO for refugees, in their programme "Together for the refugees".
The programme “Together for the Refugees”is an initiative that rely on supporting and caring companies, which would like to contribute by sending urgent help to the refugees. Help in such areas like education, emergencies or nutritional therapy.
With 70 years’ experience, the UNHCR works in 135 countries, so that refugees, internally displaced persons, returnees, stateless people and asylum seekers, who have had to flee from their homes because of armed conflict, persecution or human rights violations, can receive assistance and protection in a host country, by defending and protecting their rights, wellbeing and basic needs.
UNHCR personnel work in different places, always striving to provide protection and minimise threats of violence, including sexual, which many refugees are exposed to, and aiming for long-lasting solutions, helping refugees to return to their places of origin, if the conditions of the place allow, that they integrate in the host countries or are resettled in third counties.
UNHCR was created after the Second World War, with the aim of responding to the needs of European refugees who had to flee from their countries because of the war. Ever since then, it has been protecting millions of refugees and displaced persons for 70 years.
For all this work, UNHCR has received twice the Nobel Peace Prize (1954 and 1981) and the Premio Príncipe de Asturias de Cooperación (Prince of Asturias Cooperation Prize) in 1991.
