All along their journey, refugees go from one transit camp to the other. These places are not always the most pleasant but at least things are getting better and facilities to improve the lives of refugees are appearing. I wanted to take you in all the different aspects of one of these transit camps as a refugee would see and live the experience. From crossing the border to leaving on a train, my pictures show you what it is inside and outside the transit camp of Gevgelija in the south of Macedonia (FYROM).
I want to emphasize that as politics change, so do the situations for the refugees. At the time that these pictures were taken (October 2015), the camp border from Greece to Macedonia (FYROM) was open to all refugees regardless of their nationalities. On November 18th, it all changed when European Union ordered Macedonia (FYROM) to close its border to refugees except Syrians, Iraqis and Afghans as they were the only ones considered war refugees. As of today (01-18-2016), the border is still closed to all these other nationalities.
