*warning graphic images* Shipwreck* sad day yesterday when at least 16 people perished at sea. Refugee Rescue recovered the body of a teenage girl. A sad truth that nothing has changed since we got there in 2015. The crew continue their hard work to protect people. Yesterday we were alerted too late to save this girls life. We must continue to prevent this happening. #protectpeoplenotborders #togetherwecanhelp @helprefugeesuk
How do you pass 6 months, 9 months, 12 months in a refugee camp? In a country whose language is foreign to you, whose food is bland for your tastebuds, where you are barred from earning a living or gaining an education until a determination has been made about the eligibility of your asylum claim? Your life is on hold...your bottle caps on the other hand can move freely until you reach home. Ludo (known in the US as Parcheesi) is a popular game played in many countries in South Asia, such as Pakistan, India and Bangladesh. As one walks around the camp, you find several games going on simultaneously with 'home' made boards and pieces. Perhaps one day the refugees too, will reach a safe place they can call home. #moriarefugeecamp #refugeecrisis #games #everydayeurope #hobby #dawndotcom #etribune #refugeecamp #timepass #score #home #humanstories #humanedge #ig_asia #reportagespotlight #homemade #greece #ludo #samsungphotography #mobilephotography #natgeoyourshot #dice #ajeinpictures #everydayrefugees #instagames #instaeurope #documentaryphotograpy #instapakistan #bbcurdu
Yesterday, a boat of 25, women, girls, boys and men were trying to reach Europe to escape an unsafe and impoverished life. 9 bodies were found in Greek waters and 7 in Turkish waters. One of them was a child. Only 2 women, one of whom is 7 months pregnant survived. 7 are still unaccounted for. Do we blame the sea? The smugglers? Europe's fortress policies? Ineffective NGOs? Laws that aren't being adhered to? The government officials and policy makers who make these cowardly rejections and decisions behind closed doors? Mankind for forgetting how to be humane and kind? Didn't we say no more after Aylan Kurdi? #refugeecrisis #noborders #lesvos #greece #turkey #izmir #water #everydayeurope #everydaymigration #everydayrefugees #refugees #ajeinpictures #reflection #reportagespotlight #huffpostgram #cnnireport #newsdeeply #ig_global_life #travelandlife #aboutlastnight #humanedge #humanrights #behindthescenes #death #mobilephotography #sea #samsungphotography #journey #destination
My little brothers and sisters, You should be here. You should be laughing and playing and squabbling and instead your cold little bodies are lying in the depths of the Aegean. Your parents cry out with a grief that is un-paralleled, this horrible world has robbed them of all purpose and there is nothing left. I’m sorry my brothers, my sisters you should be here. It’s beautiful, the sun is shining, the birds dancing through the clouds, yet you are not. The world, humanity has failed you. The big men and women who promised ‘Never Again’, who told your mummies and daddies that Europe was a place of salvation and justice, they were wrong. They are so wrong, they took back that promise and they forgot that we need all your beautiful ideas. We need the music only you would make and to hear you sing the songs only you know. We need you to come here and write stories, to teach other children when you are bigger and become astronauts and scientists and mothers and lawyers and anything you want to be. I’m so sorry you were cold and no one came to help, there are so many that wanted to. There are so many people who love you, people whom you never met, but they love you so much. We love you and we won’t stop fighting, we will stay on the shores everyday waiting to help, there is always space for you all, here in our hearts, on our streets, in our schools. I promise we will try, the ones of us who know, who understand you just want a place to play, to grow, to learn. We won’t stop trying. Sorry will never be enough but it’s all we have left. My brothers, my sisters we are so sorry. So many people are thinking of you today, people who never saw your soft and cheeky smiles are thinking of you, hoping you are at peace. Our hearts are broken. All you ever knew was war I hope it’s peaceful where you lay now. Fly high in your never-land Habibi.

Yesterday another boat capsized of the coast of Lesvos and more innocent children lost their lives, how many more before our collective governments take action and provide to those fleeing war and persecution?
The cutest Santa I've ever seen. Her family had just arrived in Greece last March, and she was playing soccer in a red fuzzy Santa dress by the tents in the port of Pireaus. The sweetest and the saddest sight. #refugeeswelcome #fortresseurope
