The Fortress

Monday evening, when we get ready for night shift, we get the news that the gate has been closed already. We expected it to happen, but not this early. For a while, we don't know what to do, until ten minutes before it is time to go, we receive a call from the field not to come, that there is no need, as there are no refugees anymore. That the entire group will join the camp in the morning to pack our material.

Our help is no longer needed here.

Soap Bubbles

When we arrived at the camp at midnight, there were almost no refugees around and the situation seemed quite tense. We took over a few additional security measures from the outgoing team. At the same time, the area had been cleaned up and looked way better than the day before.
