The agency is mandated to lead and co-ordinate international action to protect refugees and resolve refugee problems worldwide. Its primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees. It strives to ensure that everyone can exercise the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another State, with the option to return home voluntarily, integrate locally or to resettle in a third country.
 
 The UNHCR works together with CRAT Cameroon taking referrals and processing claims from CRAT refugee clients in Yaounde.

The Fund was established by General Assembly resolution 36/151 of 16 December 1981 to receive voluntary contributions from Governments, non-governmental organizations and individuals for distribution to non-governmental organizations providing humanitarian assistance to victims of torture and members of their family. The type of humanitarian assistance provided by organizations which receive gr ants from the Fund consists mainly of psychological, medical, social, legal and economic assistance.

discrimination as to nationality, race, religious beliefs, class or political opinions. The Federation carries out relief operations to assist victims of disasters, and
 combines this with development work to strengthen the capacities of its member National Societies. The Federation’s work focuses on four core areas: promoting humanitarian values, disaster response, disaster preparedness, and health and community care.

The Red Cross in Cameroon works with CRAT to provide services to the refugee community in Yaounde through group psycho-social counselling sessions.

A VSO volunteer has been placed with CRAT Bamenda since May 2010 and we hope this will be the start of a long partnership. A Volunteer is currently being recruited for the Yaounde office.

CRAT also benefits by accessing funds and training opportunities froom the IRCT.
