The UNHCR – Magnum photo project
produced on the occasion of the 60th

photographers and advertisers.

National Television TVR 2. This took
place during the night news, when the
station also broadcast a 3-minute

with the HCR Representative in
Romania, the management of the

about their integration into Romanian society. The reportage was followed by a 15-minute

Timisoara, Emergency Transit Center
With the contribution of local implementing
parteners and the Lions Club Timisoara Branch,

advantage of the sunny weather.
Public Social Announcement

the PSA free of charge on all their flights around the
