WWD-MigDevPerhaps you have not yet encountered the incredible work of the IOM yet? Supported by 67 countries and controlling funds in excess of 1.3 billion USD it is committed to the principle that humane and orderly migration benefits migrants and society. If you are interested in humanitarian work then they’re really worth knowing more about.

As the leading international organization for migration, IOM acts with its partners in the international community in 56 countries worldwide to:

• Assist in meeting the growing operational challenges of migration management. • Advance understanding of migration issues. • Encourage social and economic development through migration. • Uphold the human dignity and well-being of migrants.
