The setting up of the League of Nations was written into the Treaty of Versailles. Refugees fleeing from conflicts were given vital help. A famous Norwegian explorer, Fridjof Nansen, worked for the League on the problems of prisoners of war stranded in Russia and he helped half a million men to return safely home. The Health Organisation organised work on health matters, especially in poorer countries. It worked successfully to reduce the number of cases of leprosy. The absence of the USA, however, greatly weakened the authority of the League.
From the outset, the League of Nations faced many difficulties in its role of maintaining peace.
