Alixandra Fazzina: UNCHR Interview




This interview is really worth watching and reflecting on.

In July 2010, British photo-journalist Alixandra Fazzina was awarded the annual UNHCR Nansen Refugee Award as a recognition of her work documenting the often overlooked consequences of war. In this video by UNCHR, she speaks about the plight of the uprooted.  She traveled to some of the worst hit areas in Pakistan where she saw first hand the devastation caused by the floods, and reminds us that refugees are human beings too.

UNHCR cares for more than 40 million uprooted people.

Alixandra Fazzina, who's based in Pakistan, is a member of the NOOR foundation and photo agency.
