    Humanity exists as it is today because of our ancestors courage, compassion and strength. They will never be forgotten, and we are forever in their debt.

    The Absurdity of War

    This street sign, kept to this day as a memorial and reminder, is from WWII when Leningrad was under siege for more than two years by German forces. The sign tells citizens not to walk on this side of the street, the northern side. That is because the German artillery, which fired irregularly albeit consistently, was located to south of the city, and the buildings on the other side of the street might provide cover.

    Can you give any advice on location hunting for landscape photography?

    I typically start out by browsing through my Instagram and Tumblr feeds. Once I find a place that looks interesting I’ll start to dig a little deeper by searching through images based on that location. If it looks like a place that I think is worth checking out I’ll start planning how to get there.

    WFP is scaling up its response to the Ebola virus to provide assistance to around one million people affected by the outbreak in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, delivering food alongside the health response. WFP is also assisting the wider humanitarian community with logistics, helping other organisations to get aid workers and critical supplies into the affected areas. 

    The Ebola virus in Western Africa is threatening not only lives, but also food production. If we fail to act now, entire communities could miss the harvest season.

    WFP has never faced so many emergencies at once. Your support is urgently needed. Please donate lifesaving food assistance for a family now. Donate here

    These Photos show a WFP food distribution in Dolo Town.

    Aaron Sleh WFP staff with Paulina from the Bomi county health team are currently assisting over 100 affected families in her area. Paulina said “there is need for a concerted effort form all aid agencies in collaboration with the government to defeat this disease”.
