In search of hope: Risking it all to flee conflict and hardship

By late September, some 30 million children worldwide had left their homes behind, fleeing conflict and hardship in search of safety and hope for a brighter future. As more and more stories of children arriving on Europe’s shores filled the news, I penned this photography essay for UNICEF’s global Medium account. It tells the stories of children and their families who risked it all to seek refuge in Europe and elsewhere.
