Our 15,000 colleagues in 40 countries assisted 9.8 million displaced people in 2022.

There are more people fleeing their homes than ever before. Around the world, more than 100 million people have been forced to flee because of violence, conflict, or persecution. Against a backdrop of the highest number of violent conflicts since the Second World War, the Covid-19 pandemic and higher food prices have affected these vulnerable people more than most.

Last year, NRC worked in 40 of the world’s most conflict-stricken countries across four continents. Somalia, Yemen and South Sudan are the three countries where we assisted the greatest number of people. 

In Somalia, a total of 1,441,600 people in need received our assistance in 2022. NRC supported more than 417,000 Somalians with clean water and improved sanitation and hygiene conditions. This is crucial to prevent the spread of diseases. We helped more than 117,000 people to obtain a temporary or permanent home, gave legal assistance and advice to more than 300,000 people, and provided educational support to more than 24,000 children and young people. Many displaced people received several types of assistance.

NRC is grateful that the support we receive from donors enables us to increase our efforts as the needs rise. However, the needs are far greater than the resources currently available for humanitarian work.
