Int’l Red Cross Finds Flickr

When I discovered that the International Federation of Red Cross & Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) started using Flickr I had a renewed sense of hope that humanitarian aid organizations could finally be finding their voice on the World Wide Web. I can’t imagine a better tool to project the human face of tragedy and renewal to the world.

Eventually when catastrophes like Hurricane Katrina or the 2004 Asian Tsunami hit we’ll be getting our unfiltered images straight from aid organizations rather than those edited for us by the nightly news, newspapers or even websites.
