The World’s Best Humanitarian NGO

The Danish Refugee Council tops Global Journal’s list of the world’s best humanitarian NGOs

The Global Journal exclusive NGO Top100 list was selected from 450 candidates around the world. Danish Refugee Council tops the list among humanitarian NGOs and ranks fourth in the world across all sectors.
