All the author's royalties and net proceeds from this book will be donated by Beatnik Publishing to UNICEF NZ for the Syrian Refugee programmes in Lebanon. HOPE chronicles UNICEF NZ's visit to the Saadnayel and Oumarieh Informal Refugee Settlement in Lebanon, where 3 million refugees - 500,000 of whom are children - have fled to escape the conflict in Syria. Accompanying the UNICEF team was broadcaster and investigative journalist Mike McRoberts and UNICEF ambassador Sonny Bill Williams. Christine Spring's photo-essay raises awareness of the situation millions of Syrians now find themselves in; unable to return home and traumatised by conflict. HOPE is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, and Christine's images puts you into the presence of the survivors allowing you to "see a person, not a newsflash", humanising the millions displaced by war. 'If it's hard to imagine what life is like inside the biggest refugee crisis since the Second World War, HOPE means you no longer have to. HOPE captures rich images and stories of refugees now surviving in camps in Lebanon. Mothers, fathers, sons and daughters. People just like us, but who now find themselves in the worst of circumstances.' -Mike McRoberts HOPE raises interest and awareness of the work being done by UNICEF and other NGOs (non-governmental organisations) to provide healthcare, education and protection for the hundreds of thousands of children affected by conflict

"If it's hard to imagine what life is like inside the biggest refugee crisis since the Second World War, HOPE means you no longer have to. HOPE captures rich images and stories of refugees now surviving in camps in Lebanon and, in doing so, shows us not a population's differences, but their similarities. Mothers, fathers, sons and daughters. People just like us, but through no fault of their own now in the worst of circumstances." -Mike McRoberts
