A safer place - VNR


A VNR produced by DG ECHO on the occasion of the Refugee Week and the 60th anniversary of entry into force of UN Refugee Convention. In 2012, European Commission's Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection department (ECHO) devoted 30% of its budget to support refugees worldwide. It funded projects in over 25 countries, amounting to more than €380 million and providing protection and assistance to around 10 million refugees. In background interviews: Heinke Veit, Regional Information Officer, European Commission Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (ECHO) in Jordan, and Lucy Beck, Associate External Relations Officer, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Uganda, explain the importance of the Convention in protecting refugees worldwide.
