Ahmad* (10) from Aleppo, Syria. I have two sisters and two brothers. We were displaced to Hama because of the crisis. I studied there for two years starting with the first grade. When my family returned home to Aleppo, I worked in two different barber shops. Now if I return to school I am supposed to be in fifth grade, but I will enroll in the fourth grade because I am behind. I participated in this [NRC] programme -- they gave us lessons. I love the school, teachers and my friends and the activities. I like the Arabic course and drawing. I drew myself as a teacher. I made three new friends during this programme. In the future I hope to be a teacher to teach my brothers and sisters and other children.

Hi! I’m the guy in the photo with the yellow gloves. 13-year-old Salma (the girl with the red scarf) made me, because she wanted to do something fun for the children here in the tented camp on the outskirts of #Kabul. Yes – we live in tents, all year. Masooma Qambari from the Norwegian Refugee Council (in the green scarf), is one of the persons helping us. NRC gives us warmth and hope for the future. If any children and adults in other parts of the world wants to help us too, you’re more than welcome ❤️
Thousands of Afghans living in #Kabul’s informal settlements, will struggle through the #winter months without fuel for heating and adequate shelter 😟 Temperatures are expected to drop to minus 15 degrees Celsius starting Friday, with even more snowfall ❄️ For many displaced families, this is the third winter they are trying to survive in makeshift shelters...
Renewed violence in #Myanmar has displaced 4,500 people since the beginning of #December. The ongoing clashes can further threaten the civilians’ safety and affect humanitarian actors’ access to people in need with #food, water and shelter 😢
Despite heavy rains and snow making it difficult to access Central Bekaa and Arsal in #Lebanon, we have provided help to more than 4000 people so far! We’ve distributed timber, plastic sheets, mattresses and blankets, and we've dewatered and desludged in flooded areas. Want to help? Check out our Facebook fundraiser!

Syrian refugees in #Lebanon have been badly hit by snow storm Norma this week. These are pictures they have taken themselves. We're helping refugees in Lebanon with shelter, water and emergency supplies. We need your support now! ❤️ Check out our story 👆
Corruption in the aid sector is particularly serious because it affects the most vulnerable of us. Those who have to pay the highest price are usually the people desperate for help, says Gro Skaaren-Fystro in Transparency International (TI). She praises in particular the work that #NRC are doing to battle corruption. Read more about that on our webpages 😀
Is it time to look for better policies to protect #refugees & migrants? This year the #UN presented the new Global Compact for Migration that sets out to ensure better cooperation between states on migration. The compact states that migration should take place in a safe, orderly and regular manner. So far a dozen countries have withdrawn from the process, like the #USA, #Australia, #Poland, #Hungary, #Bulgaria, the #Chec Republic, #Austria and #Italy. At the same time some countries have heated debates about the endorsement of the compact. #NRC sees the document as an undoubtfully a good step forward where most of the asks of the civil society have been taken into consideration and where the fundamental rights of migrants are promoted.
