Ben Affleck “Gimme Shelter” video launches UNHCR campaign for displaced Congolese:


Help us and Ben Affleck bring attention to the plight of North Kivu’s displaced civilians. All you have to do is post UNHCR photos of this humanitarian crisis on your blogs, websites and social media plattforms. This will help raise public awareness about the suffering and needs of the displaced as well as giving hope to those lives have been affected.


We’re also keen to know where and how you post our photos. So please send us a link to your corresponding blogs and websites.


Thank you!
