This latest contribution is to provide support for United Nations High Commissioner for Refugee's programs as follows:

--$3,054,000 for programs on behalf of Burmese and other refugees in the East Asia and Pacific region

--$1,445,000 for programs in the Northern Caucasus and in Georgia to assist the more than 250,000 people displaced by the conflict in Chechnya

--$16,400,000 to support headquarters and multi-regional activities

--$1,500,000 for the placement of American Junior Professional Officers in the organization
