The role of faith in the humanitarian sector is not easy to measure. Faiths generally advocate welcoming the stranger and there are many organisations and individuals inspired by their faith or religion to provide protection and assistance.

FMR 48 includes 36 articles on 'Faith' plus seven 'general' articles.
