Ahimsa International's aim is to bring the faces and voices of displaced and disappeared peoples to the eyes of the world, through the creation of a documentary series, which will focus firstly upon the worst global areas of crisis.

Worst Refugee Crisis

Our focus on refugees began in 1999, by looking at the worst refugee crisis on earth. This took us, and our small film crew, to the Afghan refugee camps in Pakistan. It is the single longest standing and largest population of refugees in the world. We plan to return to create an in-depth documentary series on the lives of women, children and families to help bring needed compassionate attention to this largely forgotten humanitarian crisis.
