United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is the UN agency responsible for protecting refugees and providing humanitarian assistance to those fleeing conflict and persecution. The UNHCR was established in 1950 to help refugees and other displaced persons and works to uphold the 1951 Refugee Convention and its 1967 Protocol. It provides emergency aid, shelter, and protection to refugees and other vulnerable people and works to ensure their safety and freedom of movement. The UNHCR also works to promote their rights and to help them find durable solutions such as voluntary repatriation, local integration, or resettlement in another country.

MS UNHCR Head Chair
Hello Delegates!! My name is Isabela Lyra, and I am a freshman at the Pan American School of Bahia. I'm glad to be the head chair of the UNHCR Council for the 2023 edition of SALMUN. I will try my best to make this conference the most delightful as possible. Outside the world of MUN, I enjoy spending time with my friends and going out. A fun fact about me is that this is my first time being chair of a committee. I started my MUN journey in 6th grade, however back then I was a secretary, which made me have a new academic interest. I am very excited to be chairing this committee, and can't wait to meet all delegates. If you have any questions be sure to connect me at - email@example.com
