As UNHCR statistics generally rely on data from host countries, statistics on refugees alone can give an insufficient account of refugee numbers, as some host countries will not grant refugee status to certain groups. Including statistics for individuals in refugee-like situations is an attempt to account for unrecognised refugees and does not include internally displaced persons. Statistics for stateless refugees are included if available.
We have not yet identified any NGO or law firm that is offering refugees legal assistance in Trinidad and Tobago. We would welcome suggestions of individuals or organisations.
