UNHCR ni kifupisho cha United Nations High Commission for Refugees yaani Shirika la Umoja wa Mataifa la kuhudumia Wakimbizi.
Shabaha ya shirika hili ni usaidizi kwa wakimbizi duniani. UNHCR inajenga kambi za kupokea wakimbizi wakati wa vita, inawapatia hifadhi kwenye nchi za jirani, inawasaidia kurudi kwa hiari nyumbani baada ya mapigano au kuhamia nchi nyingine.
Shirika hili lilipokea mara mbili Tuzo ya Nobel ya Amani kwa ajili ya huduma na mafanikio yake ya kuokoa maisha, wakati wa 1954 na 1981.
