UNHCR - View my most interesting photos on Flickriver

UNHCR, commonly known as the UN refugee agency, is mandated to lead and coordinate international action to protect and assist displaced people around the world and to help find lasting solutions for them.

Set up with modest goals in 1950, UNHCR has since helped tens of millions of people, picking up two Nobel Peace Prizes along the way for its vital humanitarian work.

For those forced to flee their homes, normally because of war or persecution, the UN refugee agency is often the last hope for a return to a normal life. Today, a staff of around 6,300 in more than 110 countries help some 32.9 million people in need.

A wide selection of images from the UN refugee agency’s photo archives can be accessed on Flickr. Our collection of photographs portray the daily lives of uprooted people around the world and show UNHCR staff at work.

Images can serve as a powerful tool to raise awareness about UNHCR and the millions of vulnerable people that the agency helps.

    "You pictures reflect your talent to show all of us the authentic world .
    Many countries will never be visited from many people around the world and their challenges, but on your stream it can be seen.

    Thanks a lot.
    Hope one day we can meet and make a documentation together and present here."

    "Of all my contacts, it is the images from UNHCR that I look forward to the most. I consider the images from UNHCR by far the most important and vital on Flickr.

    Thanks to the team behind the scenes for sharing these photographs.
    The information provided with the images is so valuable as well.

    Everyone should be a UNHCR contact."
