The largest country in central Asia, Kazakhstan has long been a humanitarian partner, supplying aid and assistance to emergencies in surrounding countries, Afghanistan, Pakistan and most recently, Ukraine.
Within Kazakhstan, there are about 8,000 persons of concern, of which just over 400 are refugees. Most of Kazakhstan’s refugee population are from Afghanistan, who have been living in the country for an extended period of time. However, without the same rights as a permanent resident holder, the refugee population do not have access to equal socioeconomic opportunities.
In collaboration with local and international partners, we have provided our relief units in Kazakhstan as temporary homes for displaced families to live in safely, and infrastructure to promote improved health, protection and education. Learn more about our support.
