Know a hero helping refugees? Nominate them for the 2018 Nansen Award.
The UNHCR Nansen Refugee Award is presented every year to an individual or organisation who has dedicated their time going above and beyond the call of duty to help people forcibly displaced from their homes.
The Award is named after Fridtjof Nansen, courageous Norwegian explorer and humanitarian who served as the first High Commissioner for Refugees for the League of Nations.
Through its recipients, the Nansen Refugee Award aims to showcase Nansen’s values of perseverance and commitment in the face of adversity.
