Instagram is the perfect visual medium to bring our attention to the world’s biggest problems; through pictures, it is possible to quickly convey emotions; and emotions lead to comprehension and understanding, hopefully bringing help to those in need. Many charitable foundations and non-profits use Instagram to convey their message and spread awarness towards the issues they work for.

David, 12, plays with a rope at a #UNICEF-supported school in Northern #Cameroon. Boko Haram attacked his village and killed his parents – he hid in a dry river bed to stay safe and has not seen his younger brother since the attack. The conflict in North-East #Nigeria has led to widespread displacement, human rights violations and a severe humanitarian crisis, causing children like David to lose out on their childhood. #BringBackOurChildhood © UNICEF/UN015846/Prinsloo
