The last couple of months has seen me travelling, on fact-finding missions about refugees, for Migrant Report and MOAS, in Bangladesh, Myanmar, and Turkey. Next week, I get back on board with MOAS_EU, on their new mission to the Aegean Sea, to document the refugee rescues at sea, off the coast of Greece.

More news coming soon
