Postcards from migrants

As Europe steps up measures to curb migration, refugees and migrants are taking increasing risks to cross its borders. Escaping conflict, violence, or extreme deprivation, migrants are often exposed to horrific episodes of violence and exploitation on their journeys there. Many find themselves stranded in transit countries for long periods of time, unable either to continue their journey or to return home. For those who reach Europe, life is still hard, as they face detention, poor living conditions, and uncertainty about the future. 

Through these postcards, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is sharing the stories of men and women who left their home countries in search of safety, peace, and decent living conditions.
