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.

CFSI’s work in Vietnam includes social assistance programs building on on CFSI’s many years of experience with refugees and asylum seekers from Viet Nam in various parts of East Asia, particularly Hong Kong and the Philippines. The impetus was two-fold: (1) fostering the repatriation of those Vietnamese denied refugee status in first asylum countries in East Asia and (2) promoting the well-being of children in Viet Nam in exceptionally difficult circumstances and in need of special protection.
