“The authorities are so far behind in processing asylum claims that currently 20,000 people are in a camp designed for 3,000. It is filled with families desperately doing what they can to make life better.”
Moria Camp, Lesvos, Greece
“Aida Camp is less than one square kilometer, and hasn’t been able to expand. The narrow alleyways and roads make it a challenge to bring in medical care.”
Aida Camp, Bethlehem, Palestine
“I was really struck by the wall, seeing it in person hit me very deeply, as well as hearing the stories of discrimination, hurt, pain and loss; and how the U.S. law are impacting people on both sides.”
U.S. Southern Border, Tijuana, Mexico
