Magnum Photography Awards 2016 - Maurício Lima - "Refugees"


Idomeni, Greece, November 28, 2015. Barred refugees struggle for donations of water, blankets, diapers and a few clothes. Everyone here has completed their 10th day encamped by the train station in Idomeni, Greece. They still have not received permission to cross the border into the Macedonian town of Gevgelija. Only refugees from Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria have been allowed to cross and continue their journey to Europe through the Balkan countries.

Hundreds of thousands of refugees, mostly from Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria, fled their homes, risking their lives in dangerous boat trips, illegal border crossings and long bus and train journeys, seeking asylum and a decent life in Western Europe and Scandinavia. The latest UN report from January 2015 estimated that more than 220,000 people have become fatal victims of the endless war in Syria.
