Forgotten Situations of Displacement: A Photo Essay

16 July 2022

When an emergency breaks out, forcibly displaced people find themselves at the center of international debates.

Sadly, media and political attention do not last long. Soon the stories of refugees are neglected, their voices silenced.

Even if they don’t make the headlines, people affected by crisis like those in Syria, Afghanistan, South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Yemen, Venezuela, are still in need.

Read about these and other forgotten situations of displacement in the first of a dedicated series of photo essays.

We must not forget our forcibly displaced brothers and sisters.

May we never yield to the temptation to disregard others, especially those in greatest need, and to look the other way; instead, may we strive daily, in concrete and practical ways, to form a community composed of brothers and sisters who accept and care for one another.
