United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees launches Global Focus website

In 2014, UNHCR selected Insomniac Design to design and develop Global Focus, a high-impact donor website. Charged with protecting millions of refugees, stateless, internally displaced and other people of concern, the UN refugee agency needs to work with a wide variety of donors and partners to adequately fulfill its role. UNHCR raises funds through governments, foundations and private donors so that refugees can be assisted immediately with food, shelter and other essentials distributed by the agency's implementing partners. The Global Focus website which launched in February 2015 will make all funding, program, and donor information public and transparent for the first time. Insomniac Design will continue supporting the maintenance of the website for a two year period.
