Making a difference, together.

The Republic of Korea is a key, supportive partner to UNHCR in the response to forced displacement worldwide.

The Republic of Korea is one of UNHCR's key government partners around the world in protecting and assisting people of concern to UNHCR—refugees, stateless persons, returnees and internally displaced people. As a member of the governing Executive Committee (ExCom) since 2000, the Republic of Korea's support for UNHCR’s mandate and forcibly displaced people has been steadfast and reliable.

The Republic of Korea's growing contribution to UNHCR has proven essential in the delivery of humanitarian assistance, protection, and solutions to those most in need. The consistent and often multi-year financial support to UNHCR directly contributes to the Office’s activities on the ground, saving lives, responding to new emergencies and offering solutions in protracted situations worldwide. Remarkable is the Republic of Korea's support to the Comprehensive Refugee Response Framework (CRRF), as well as activities in the area of education, livelihoods, self-reliance and peaceful coexistence in Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America.

The Republic of Korea is also standing out as a bearer of good practice in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, as their health prevention and response has been inclusive of all people of concern regardless of their status. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Republic of Korea contributed with 3.6 million medical masks which were distributed across 12 UNHCR operations worldwide. Several Korean nationals also support UNHCR's work in various functional responsibilities and in areas where assistance is most needed. The Republic of Korea is also a big supporter of the Global Compact on Refugees and a strong advocate for the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development.

“I am in school because I want to acquire knowledge for a better future; probably be a leader in South Sudan in the future. I want to fight early pregnancies. Being in school saves me.”

With support from the Republic of Korea, 19-year-old Sophie was able to find safety and is now a Senior 4 student at Highland Secondary School, Bidibidi. Sophie is one of over 230,000 South Sudanese refugees currently living in Bidibidi settlement, Uganda, after fleeing the civil war.

Senior trained refugee artisans work on creations in Pakistan to be sold by MADE51.

Saira and Noor are two senior refugee women from Afghanistan. They are trained artisans working in the Artisan Links Office to finalize the crafting products. These products made by refugee women are sold by Artisan Links, which is part of MADE51, an organization bringing refugee-made products into the global market.

With support from the Republic of Korea, UNHCR empowers refugee women to make a living with their crafting skills.
