Nominations are open for the UNHCR Nansen Refugee Awards 2022. Every year, UNHCR searches for a person or an organization with exceptional dedication and commitment to supporting people who are refugees, internally displaced, or stateless. That person or group wins the UNHCR Nansen Refugee Award.

The 2021 laureate is the Jeel Albena Association for Humanitarian Development (JAAHD), a humanitarian organization providing emergency services to internally displaced people in northern Yemen. Founded in 2017, the organization has constructed 18,000 emergency shelters for internally displaced people and their host communities and helped thousands through its skills-building center and school rehabilitation program. The founder, Ameen Jubran, himself was displaced by the conflict in Yemen in 2015. Jubran and his colleagues have shown exceptional perseverance, humanitarian spirit, and commitment to people forced to flee, continuing throughout the conflict to deliver lifesaving aid to those who need it the most.
