The only shelter on the 60km walk from Molyvos to Mytilini on the greek island Lesvos. This shelter is run by a local priest who is dying of lung Cancer. When he dies the Will be nowhere to stop along
Featured in tomorrows @informationdk with My image from Lesvos. Here a man rushes towards the refugees, not to help - he wants their Engine before the other engine thieves.
Everybody meet Muhammed. He left Aleppo in Syria 4 months ago and just arrived at the Greek shores. He instantly hugs his family, keeps everybody together and after the first couple of minutes tears burst out of his eyes. Pure relief. In Aleppo he was a Pharmacist, and he loved his work. Now he has almost no money left having paid 7200 USD for the 1 hour boat ride to Greece. A boat ride that involved armed turkish smuglers taking them from Izmir, and then camping in the woods for 2 days without food or water. The thing is – Muhammed doesn't know that due to Europes lack of involvement on the Greek islands and the local system collapsed. He, his 4 children and his wife will have to wait up to 7 days on Lesvos before getting their papers, and after that the long and today very unsafe journey towards the north starts. I hope him and his family make it somewhere nice and friendly.

Syrian family gets comforted by a tourist helping them when they land on the greek Island of Lesvos. Here is no NGO, no government and no EU.
Yesterday i visited Kara Tepe refugee Camp. I brought My small Fuji instax and made small prints for the families. Many have never had their child as a photoprint. A Nice and varm experience in the middle Of kaos.
This look stays with you. Syrian kids moments after they reached the Greek Island Lesvos. Horrified and shivvering from their wet clothes.
