About Danish Refugee Council:
The Danish Refugee Council (DRC) is a humanitarian, non-governmental, non-profit organization working in more than 30 countries throughout the world. DRC has been present in Afghanistan since the end of 2010 implementing programming that includes livelihoods, protection, emergency response and preparedness, infrastructure development, and supply chain management and logistical support to UNHCR. DRC is registered with the Government of Afghanistan through the Ministry of Economy and MoRR. DRC AFG has implemented programs funded by DANIDA, EC, ECHOP, BPRM, UNHCR and WFP supporting over 25,000 displaced families per year.
DRC adopts a regional approach unifying our country programs in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran and Tajikistan around the Afghan displacement axis. This decision is built on the premise that a multi-stakeholder regional response to the massive displacement issue is required. The DRC approach is in line with UNHCR’s push for a regionally based robust and ‘Comprehensive Solutions Strategy’ (2012-2014). The four country programs strive, wherever possible, to adopt a regional approach to activities, including cross border livelihood and protection programs and coordinated emergency preparedness and response planning.
