The Norwegian Refugee Council is an independent humanitarian organisation helping people forced to flee. Whatever it takes. Wherever, and whenever, we're needed.

We deliver high-quality aid where needs are greatest. When we started our relief efforts after World War Two, humanitarian needs were critical. They still are – and we’re still there, protecting people forced to flee and supporting them as they build a new future. Today, we work in both new and protracted crises across 30 countries, where we provide food assistance, clean water, shelter, legal aid, and education. We stand up for people forced to flee. NRC is a determined advocate for displaced people. When we witness injustices, we alert the world. We promote 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.

We respond quickly to emergencies. Our expert deployment capacity NORCAP, the world’s most used, boasts around 900 experts from all over the world. Our experts stand ready to deploy at a moment’s notice to support the UN and local authorities in humanitarian crises.

Around 5,000 men and women work for the Norwegian Refugee Council. Most of us are hired locally to work in the field, and a small number are based at our head office in Oslo. Many of our colleagues were once themselves fleeing their homes.

Today, a record 60 million people are fleeing war and persecution. Not since World War Two have more people needed our help. The Norwegian Refugee Council assisted more than five million people worldwide in 2015, and with your support, we can help even more.
