Migration crisis in North America πŸ‡²πŸ‡½πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

A message found in International Rescue Committee (IRC) Office, Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, May 2023

As the political and economical situation for many people in Latin America and the Caribbean becomes unbearable, millions of people decide to leave their homes to look for better lives. Many choose the USA to be their dreamt homes. Yet the asylum policies in the US are becoming tougher. Thousands of people are turned back from the US to Mexico, while many are not able to get there at all. People end up being trafficked, abused and left without basic services, while trying to reach their 'dreamt home'. It is the northern Mexico that is now home to thousands of asylum seekers who are stuck here: not being able to move north (to the US), and unable to return to their home countries.

My mission to northern Mexico is to learn about the humanitarian needs of the migrants and learn about the interventions that are being carried out by our amazing partners (NGOs, UN organisations and Red Cross family) trying to ease suffering and help people come and find solutions in their seemingly hopeless situation. This album documents my trip to Mexico and the United States.

The Balts πŸ‡±πŸ‡»πŸ‡±πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡ͺπŸ‡ͺπŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Ί

A border point between Latvia and Estonia; Ainazi, Latvia, April 2023

After visiting Portugal, I had a chance to fly to Riga and explore Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. Three Baltic countries I have not visited and always wanted to get to know.

Three days is not enough to go in depth, but it is enough to make you understand that the Baltic countries are amazing... lovely, easy going and friendly. I shall definitely be back, and would love to recommend visiting the Trio, if you have a chance!

An emergency deployment for a flood crisis in Gran Chaco πŸ‡΅πŸ‡ΎπŸ‡§πŸ‡·

Porto Casado, Paraguay, March 2023

In February and March, much of Paraguay got affected with extensive flash floods, and thousands of families lost their homes and livelihoods. If this was not enough, the rains prompted breeding of mosquitos, which is causing an outbreak of Dengue Fever. Thousands of people get sick on daily basis, which makes the flood response and recovery yet more difficult. This album shows images from my emergency deployment to the country (border between Paraguay and Brazil) to determine what assistance we could provide to those needing it.
