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.

Abandoned at birth to die in the sun, this Afghan woman - Fawzia Koofi - has fought to survive, be educated and be elected to parliament. She has been the target of several assassination attempts, but carries on her work to give her daughters and all women a voice in her country. "We live, we fight".

Watch her tell her story.

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.

Hey, Arjav Rawal, maybe you should see some of the many Daniel Craig movies where he does not play James Bond and see for yourself what a man committed to peace he really is.

Good job by the UN, but what about all those countries where landmines still exist? A vicious weapon that claims victims long after the war is over.

Much of the world's population will soon live in mega-cities. Often seen as a problem, these cities actually hold the key to a sustainable future, if their resources are adequately managed and their energy harnessed for the common good.
