Humanitarian & Asylum
Helping Refugees, Asylum Seekers, and Victims of Human Trafficking
Every day around the world, people make the difficult decision to leave their their countries—in pursuit of a safer place to live and hope for a better future. Families migrate for different reasons: conflict, violence, human rights violations, lack of economic prospects, or natural disasters.
Migrants’ journeys are often dangerous. They may lose contact with their families, fall victim to human trafficking or be exploited in informal labor arrangements. According to UNHCR, 1 person is forcibly displaced every two seconds as a result of conflict or persecution. And in recent years, the number of children migrating alone—without parents or guardians—has increased.
As part of the world’s humanitarian network, Orpe Human Rights partners with partners' teams to provide aid and hope to migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers in accordance with our fundamental principles.
Aiding Refugees and Migrants at Various Stages
Our network’s global presence enables us to aid migrants at various stages of their journeys: in countries of origin, transit and destination. The Orpe Human Rights Advocates network is expected of delivering relief supplies—such as food, water, hygiene kits, baby supplies, clothing and basic medical items—in addition to first aid and medical services, shelter, and comfort to families traumatized by conflict. This work takes place all over the globe—from Africa and Central America to Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
Orpe Human Rights Advocates teams in cooperation with UNHCR, and Red Cross also take on the critical task of reconnecting families separated by international crises via our Restoring Family Links program.

As a humanitarian organization, we do not turn away anyone in need.
