Photo by Lynsey Addario @lynseyaddario | Women and children, who by and large expressed unwavering support for the Islamic State, wait to be registered at Al-Hol refugee camp during the Islamic State's final days in Baghouz, Deir Ezzour Province. Several thousand women and children arrived in March 2019. The U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) claimed victory in late March over the last remaining sliver of land controlled by the brutal Islamic state in the town of Baghouz, as tens of thousands of the fighters’ family members surrendered through a human corridor set up by the SDF during the past six weeks under heavy bombardment and intense clashes. Women and children, some who were likely being used as human shields, had been living in tunnels and caves with limited food, medicine, and sanitation. A humanitarian crisis emerges as ISIS falls in northern Syria.

Photo by @renan_ozturk // sponsored by @thenorthface // I heard a heartwarming rumor that Earth Day might become a full-on national holiday, which would be a huge win in so many ways. The more folks we get outside developing connections to the Earth, the better chance we have to protect it for future generations. I will never forget the cold sunrise when I captured this image on the summit of Mont Blanc, and it fuels me to want to protect its fragile majesty. Please lend your voice to help make Earth Day a national holiday! // We all deserve time to explore and connect. Stand with us and sign the #EarthDayPetition for Earth Day to be a national holiday.

Photo by Ami Vitale @amivitale | Afghan Kuchi nomad children who were living in a camp for displaced people around Spin Boldak, near the border of Pakistan and southern Afghanistan, are relocated to the encampment of Zhare Dasht by the UNHCR (@refugees) in 2002. 
As the U.S. war in Afghanistan enters its 20th year and the country marks its fourth decade of conflict, 2.6 million Afghans live as refugees. Another 1.5 million are internally displaced. Due to ongoing conflict, Afghanistan was the largest refugee-producing country in the world, seeing even second and third generations being born as refugees, never having known their homeland. Still today, Afghan citizens are the second largest population of refugees in the world, after Syria. The crisis shows little hope of abating. To learn more, including how to help, follow @refugees @unicef @theirc @doctorswithoutborders and others working on the front lines of the refugee crisis.

Photo by Sara Hylton @sarahyltonphoto | Venkatesh Appala grows bell peppers in Laxmapur village in Telangana state, India. He started his greenhouse operation in January 2017 and estimates a profit of 46,000 rupees (just over $700) in his first year. He's using the extra income to save for his daughter's dowry, which can run up to $10,000. A community of farmers, including Appala, has started using small greenhouse technology developed by the organization Kheyti to adapt to climate change, which protects crops and relies on 90 percent less water.
