UNHCR believes in the transformative power of storytelling. We are inviting individuals, families, and communities displaced by last year’s conflict in Marawi to tell their stories with us. By sharing their narratives, we are able to transcend challenges and build a better future filled with hope.

UNHCR’s annual Global Trends Report said 65.6 million people were displaced at the end of 2016, some 300,000 more than a year earlier. Over 10 million people were newly displaced during the course of the year.
