These children outside their home in Nyal, South Sudan = our #EverydayInspiration. A combination of violence, insecurity and prolonged drought has left more than 20 million peoplemore than the populations of New York, Los Angeles, Houston, Chicago and Philadelphia combined in an area as wide as East Africa, West Africa and Yemen facing famine and starvation. The U.N. has declared this the largest humanitarian crisis since 1945. As a part of the @globalemergencyresponse coalition with our sister NGOs @savethechildren @mercycorps @worldvision @internationalmedicalcorps @oxfaminternational @careorg @planinternational, we''re on the ground, working to #FightFamine.

As @gameofthrones continues the launch of its 7th season, were reliving some of our favorite moments from our special @hbo/GoT partnership last year. In a visit to Greece with the IRC, star @maisie_williams met Haya, a 13-year old Syrian refugee who dreams of being an actress. After fleeing from Deir al-Zor, Syria with her mother, father and two sisters, Haya met Maisie in Cherso refugee camp in Northern Greece, where she spent her time writing and performing plays in one of the IRCs safe spaces for children. You will conquer anything you want to achieve, Maisie told Haiya. Thank you HBO and the cast of GoT for your commitment to #StandWithRefugees! #maisiewilliams #gameofthrones

Scroll through for a unique glimpse into of one of the most dangerous places in the world, #Afghanistan, and some of the child refugees IRC is supporting with an education Afghanistan is one of the world''s oldest but still most pressing crises. It remains one of the most violent and unstable countries in the world, caught in a losing fight against both ISIS and the Taliban. Displacement is now at an all-time high, with 1 million people uprooted inside their own country and 3 million seeking safety in other countries. For the first time in almost a decade, we sent a photographer to cover our work in Afghanistan, a country we''ve been working in for almost 30 years, starting in 1988. Since the 1970s, millions of Afghans have fled to Pakistan to escape ongoing violence and natural disaster. Theyve found safety, built families and restarted their lives. However, many are now being forced to return. 1 million registered Afghan refugees and 1.5 million undocumented Afghan refugees were estimated to be living in Pakistan at the start of 2016. Pressured to leave, more than 600,000 refugees have already repatriated to Afghanistan. International humanitarian agencies expect at least a 500,000 or more to return in 2017. With 70% of Afghans living in chronic poverty and 9 million people in need of humanitarian aid, the nation is not economically or politically prepared to support an influx of returning refugees. At IRC, we''re doing all we can to support these vulnerable Afghan refugee returnees. In these photos, here are just some of the young Afghan children we''re supporting with an education. Learn more about the situation in Afghanistan on Rescue.org.
