Refugee Taking Care of Her Mother

Rarely in modern history have so many been so desperate to flee, reshaping Europe and the world. Their journey began in war, poverty and oppression. They are fleeing, by the hundreds of thousands, from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, Somalia, Iran and Pakistan, a ceaseless flow of humanity driven by wars, insecurity, lack of opportunity and fear for the newly formed Islamic State. Their desperation is only matched by their fortitude and sense of hope.
