The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has announced that there are approximately 114 million displaced people worldwide, including refugees and internally displaced persons. This displacement is primarily due to conflicts, persecution, human rights violations, and other factors.
The UNHCR revealed this data up to January 2023. Countries such as Ukraine, Sudan, Myanmar, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo are among the most affected by the large number of displaced people, with ongoing conflicts and displacement issues. Afghanistan and Somalia also continue to face significant displacement challenges.
Notably, many Somalis have been displaced due to violence and insecurity, while others have been affected by various natural disasters.
This global refugee crisis is a significant issue, and the UNHCR’s High Commissioner, Filippo Grandi, has called for international cooperation to address it. It’s important to note that these numbers are continually changing as new displacements occur.
