10 Jan ACNUR – CATALAN COMMITTEE: OCTOBER – NOVEMBER 2015
This month we support the Catalan Committee of ACNUR:
The Catalan Committee for Refugees, Catalonia with ACNUR, is an Association created in 2001 with the aim of supporting UNHCR’s tasks in the Catalan territory. It does so through awareness raising and education for development, as well as through the raising of public and private funds to help finance ACNUR projects around the world.
The Catalan Committee of ACNUR, is a partner-entity of the Association “Spain with ACNUR”, and has the participation of a broad representation of Catalan society, both from the institutional and civil fields.
It provides protection and assistance to refugees, internally displaced persons, asylum seekers, stateless persons, and returnees worldwide, seeking durable solutions to reinitiate their lives through repatriation, resettlement and local integration programs.
It also promotes international agreements to ensure the application of international refugee law by governments.
