Solidarity

I live in Leros, one of the islands in Greece heavily affected by the Syrian Refugee situation (I hate the word “crisis”). I am also part of the Leros Solidarity Network (Facebook: lerossn) which, in coordination with a number of organizations (UNHCR, MSF, etc.) and a multitude of volunteers from all around the world, has been helping hundreds of people during their short stay on the island, before they continue on their long and difficult journey towards (most often) Northern Europe. I usually don’t like taking photos around the camps, mainly because there’s always something to actually DO to help when you’re there, but there have been some relaxed moments, when I’ve managed to snap some shots for the LSN website & FB, and here are some of them.
