The Danish Refugee Council (DRC) is a humanitarian, non-governmental, non-profit organisation founded in 1956 that works in more than 30 countries throughout the world.

DRC fulfils its mandate by providing direct assistance to conflict-affected populations – refugees, internally displaced people (IDPs) and host communities in the conflict areas of the world; and by advocating on behalf of conflict-affected populations internationally, and in Denmark, on the basis of humanitarian principles and the Human Rights Declaration. We understand "durable solutions" as any means by which the situation of refugees can be permanently and satisfactorily resolved, enabling them to live normal lives. Durable solutions can be voluntary repatriation, local integration or resettlement. In Denmark, DRC assists refugees in all aspects of integration as well as asylum procedures. Internationally, DRC actively participates in supporting the protection of refugees, and promoting durable solutions for conflict-affected populations.

The Danish Refugee Council is currently implementing a broad range of activities relevant to conflict affected communities and persons. Danish Refugee Council is currently working in more than 30 countries around the world. work with refugees and internally displaced persons ranges from emergency aid over reconstruction to assisting refugees in returning home.

The activities are categorized in ten sectors: Shelter and Non-food Items, Food Security, Protection, Income Generation, Coordination and Operational Services, Community Infrastructure and Services, Humanitarian Mine Action, Armed Violence Reduction (AVR), Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), and Education.
