UNHCR tents are transformed into stunning works of art by refugees.

After hearing refugees’ stories on a visit to Jordan last year, UK
artist Hannah Rose Thomas came up with the innovative idea of
recycling old UNHCR tents as a canvas for refugees to express
themselves.

Around 200 refugees painted three tents on the themes of ‘Hope’,
‘Memories’ and ‘The Impact of War On Families’.

The most common image expressed by the refugees however, one that kept reoccurring, was ‘home’, highlighting the longing of many refugees for the conflict to end and to return to their lives.

The results have been so powerful that the tents are now set to be exhibited in locations across the world.

World Food Programme's Emergency Telecommunications (ET) Cluster in Sierra Leone, along with partners, provides Internet connectivity for 65 medical institutions fighting on the front lines of Ebola.

“Having Internet makes a world of a difference as the doctors receive at least 30 emails per day with new information, and have a constant need to communicate across the teams in different locations,” says a doctor working in the country.

Vincent Cochetel was held hostage for 317 days in 1998, while working for UNHCR in Chechnya. For the first time, he recounts the experience and explains why he continues his work today.

Since 2000, attacks on humanitarian aid workers have tripled — and he wonders what that rise may signal to the world.
