Urban Refugees
Recently the balance between urban and camp refugees has shifted towards the former. Most of the world's displaced persons now live in urban areas. Although the quality of services and availability of jobs is much better, urban refugees face a myriad of obstacles ranging from xenophobia to detention. JRS works to ensure that the most vulnerable urban refugees do not fall through the cracks.

Refugee women - responding to the needs of survivors
