Huwayeti adds a blockchain-based claims layer to UNHCR refugee registration to track additional information ascertained by trusted agents (doctors, UN officials, NGO representatives, etc.) about refugees to their UNHCR profile.

"Registration goes far beyond a mere head count: it is the recording, verifying, and updating of information on people forced to flee so they can be protected." -UNHCR

At the end of last year, 65.3 million people were displaced—”the highest level ever recorded and representing immense human suffering,” the UNHCR said in a statement.

The UNHCR is already actively working to identify refugees. Recently, the UNHCR released a new biometric card for refugees, which UNHCR Senior Protection Officer (Oversight) Michael Wells calls “state-of-the-art technology, one of the highest and best globally, backed with a retina, 10 fingers and face scan.” This card was launched alongisde a mobile app called UNHCR VERIFY-MY, which is designed to let authorities scan the SQR code on the back of a given card and verify its authenticity.
