The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is now providing free passenger and cargo transportation to societies in need of support.
This alliance is currently helping displaced families, providing aid materials, and making donations to people living in Ukraine and other areas of the world.
Displaced individuals are receiving tickets to destinations in the South American flight network, and are being guaranteed protection from UNHCR.
In 2020, around 1% of people around the world were being forced to leave their homes. This year, around 10 million people have been displaced by the crisis in Ukraine and surrounding areas. South America and the Caribbean also have around 18m people displaced.
As well, places such as Afghanistan, Ethiopia, and Venezuela are also in need of help from free cargo transport by organizations such as UNHCR.
In addition, UNHCR is alllowing vaccines and health professionals to be transported to countries throughout the pandemic. In fact, it transported around 232m doses of vaccines and moved around 3,400 health professionals to countries where it operates.
Moreover, UNHCR is providing value to society through these contributions. Thus, people in need are being supported through the organization’s social commitment.
