16 Children: 16 Photos

2016 was the Year of the Child Refugees.
Bare feet on cold roads. Worn-out boats on the verge of capsizing. Millions dreaming of a better place. 
Weakest of them all were of course the children that this story is about.
About the many under-age children who in 2016 – with or without their loved ones – left what they knew as home and fled to Europe. About the lonely moments in the camps, and the endless marches along highways. Fleeing across rivers. In pouring rain under umbrellas. Confronted with painful barbed wire. Confusing police signposts that are not understood

Here are 16 children. You don’t know them yet – and you see them alone in the world. But as you click on the pictures, and the backdrop appears, you can see what being a refugee child in 2016 really means for them.
