International Humanitarian Relief Operations, undertaken outside the parameters of UN Peacekeeping Operations, provide assistance to afflicted people (refugees, etc.) and the repair of damage caused by conflicts. These operations are usually carried out by various UN organizations, such as the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees ( UNHCR ) and the World Health Organization ( WHO ).
