Humanitarian cash transfers are vital for refugees, displaced people, communities hosting them and other vulnerable groups at a time of lockdowns and growing joblessness.
Thanks @UNCERF for helping in Jordan and elsewhere. More donor support for cash based programmes is needed! https://t.co/4yMEbnKbHu

Resettlement is a life saving tool for vulnerable refugees. Unfortunately resettlement places have declined globally - therefore we are grateful to Canada and other states making efforts to expand and innovate their programmes, as announced by @marcomendicino at the ATCR today. https://t.co/bXQcDZjSIY
Today @UN SG @antonioguterres praised humanitarian organizations at the @iascch - UN, Red Cross, NGOs - for their response to #COVID__19.
In 36 years of work in crises I have never seen aid agencies operating with such unity and determination.
Together, we make a difference. https://t.co/UEW6zwHo4d
Thank you @HeikoMaas and @GermanyDiplo for inviting me to #BCSC2020.
I welcome the focus on forced displacement as one of the consequences of climate change, which shows the urgency of the climate emergency, and its impact on peace and stability. https://t.co/0oBEwqF4cf
Merci, @mohamedbazoum, pour cet engagement. Vos propos démontrent encore une fois que le Niger demeure un pays modèle du point de vue de la protection des réfugiés et la recherche de solutions pour les déplacés. @Le_HCR va continuer à appuyer vos efforts exemplaires et généreux. https://t.co/PxnYAG2I0Z
I was happy to meet some young Afghan refugees and asylum seekers on #WorldRefugeeDay in Geneva, relocated from Greece ?? as unaccompanied minors.
Thank you, Switzerland??, for this initiative, parallel to the relocation programme for children coordinated by the @EU_Commission. https://t.co/9zMyPdQgSQ
