Google Earth Maps Refugee Crises

Google Inc. unveiled a new feature today for its popular mapping programs that will spotlight the movement of refugees around the world. Users with Google Earth, UNHCR will have access refugee information. The maps were developed to aid humanitarian operations and help inform the public about the millions of people who have fled their homes due of violence or hardship. Take the time to download satellite images of refugee hot spots such as Darfur, Iraq or Colombia and see where the refugees have come from and what problems they face. I have the photo of this little face on my desktop background to remind me everyday to do something, even if it's just a prayer. I dare you to look at these images and not feel anything.
