    Seven year old Shabana who was a refugee in Pakistan up until a year ago. She returned to Afghanistan with her family with the help of UNHCR. The United Nations refugee agency. The huge smile from Shabana is because that this photographer tried to speak Pashto. Her reactions was just wonderful, I dont think I have ever photographed a bigger smile in my life. Since 2002, more than 5.8 million Afghan refugees have returned home, 4.7 million of whom were assisted by UNHCR. Representing 20 per cent of Afghanistan's population, returnees remain a key population of concern to UNHCR. Refugee returns have dwindled during the past five years and owing to insecurity and a difficult socio-economic situation, only around 10,000 refugees returned during the first seven months of 2014.

    The word 'gaucho' came into existence for the first time in 1790 to describe a very rough individual, with heavy manners, that would travel alone, sometimes with a woman, having as his only baggage, a knife called 'facon'. Gauchos belong to the Argentine countryside. They would be the ones who were familiar with all intricacies of the land and their animals, as well as the life of the natives they would fight. Gauchos would gather together in "vaquerias" for hunting purposes ~ Photography: Sebastian Rich/Copyright/All Rights reserved.

  • JORDAN

    This is Hajjar ten years old one of Jordan’s 70,000, gypsy community, an Indo-Aryan people known as the Dom, Bani Murra,or Nawar.
    The Dom hold Jordanian citizenship and once held key roles in the military at the time of the country’s founding in the early 20th century. The Dom are believed to have migrated from the Indian subcontinent in the 6th century and slowly migrated through the Middle East, with evidence of Dom settlements in Jordan by the time of the Crusades.

    When King Abdullah I, looked to build a state in the sparsely-populated Trans-Jordan region in the early 1920s, the Dom were considered an asset and were conscripted into the army. But after hundreds of thousands of Palestinians fled to or were driven into Jordan in the 1948 and 1967 Arab-Israeli wars, the kingdom was no longer in need of the Dom’s support, and the gypsy community soon lost its privileged status. ~ Copyright: Sebastian Rich/UNICEF/All rights reserved.
