RefugePoint protection officers are highly trained to identify the most vulnerable refugees. The factors that heighten vulnerability vary from one refugee situation to another, but generally include:
- Orphaned, separated, or neglected children
- Women and girls at risk
- Survivors of torture
- People with life-threatening medical conditions
- Elderly refugees
- Refugees in imminent physical danger
