In this modern world there are still many displaced persons.

(Kuala Lumpur=Koreanpress) RamaniRathir = The UNHCR(United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) is making concerted efforts to make the world realize just how bad the refugee situation is. Taking the premise that a picture is worth more than a thousand words, it has presented a telling indictment of Man’s inhumanity to Man.Under the theme  ‘Imagine if your family had just 1 minute to flee...’these haunting photographs were released by UNHCR with every frame telling a story.

Photo captions:


1.    MagbolaAlhadi and her children survived months of bombing raids but were forced to flee when soldiers came and opened fire on their village. The most important thing she brought with her was this pot. It was small enough to carry on their 12-day journey, yet big enough to cook for her family.

2.    Ambia fled with her husband, Mahmud, their six children and her parents when their village in Myanmar came under attack and their home was burnt to the ground. The most important thing they were able to bring was their betelnut case. They didn't know when they would eat next, but chewing on betenut helped the family stave off hunger

3.    "When I fled my home, I walked into the unknown; these slippers carried me through. They kept falling apart, and I kept tying them back together. When they were no longer useable, I would get another pair exactly the same. In Sudan, they were a part of me - a security blanket and a symbol of my journey."

4.    Juan and his daughter fled to Brazil in 2006, from armed groups in Columbia. Their most important thing was a book given to them by Juan's mother, titled: "The Power of Tenacious Thinking".  "Whenever I read the book, I think of my mother and it gives me the strength to continue".

5.    Leilah fled Syria and now lives with her six children in a derelict apartment in Athens, Greece. The most important thing she brought with her was this photo album. It reminds her of happier times with her husband, who disappeared in the conflict. "Leaving my country was like death for me".

6.    MsafiriTawimbi fled DRC in 1996 with his family. Before reaching Tanzania they were ambushed by soldiers. His wife was killed and his 2 year old girl was left severely disabled. Msafiri kept this torn T-shirt - the one he wore when fleeing - to remind him of what his family went through.

7.    Mohamed and Reena were tortured in Syria and fled the country after fighters burned down their home. The one thing that survived was a cell phone holding photos of their relatives. Now living in Bulgaria, Mohamed hopes to open a restaurant and provide a better future for their children.
