The situation for refugees around the world is frequently a desperate one, and one that continues to be a concern of a number of international organizations, such as the World Bank and others. One such organization is USA for UNHCR, which is dedicated to raising the consciousness of Americans about "the work and accomplishments of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)". For those who may not be immediately familiar with their work, the UNHCR is responsible for protecting over 20 million people worldwide, including refugees, internally displaced people, and former refugees who are hoping to return their homes. On the organization's site, visitors can learn about volunteer opportunities, World Refugee Day, and read news updates about both its humanitarian work and the situation of various refugee populations.
