Photo by @noralorek | Dandan, Wessam, and Ibrahim, from Daraa in Syria, met in Calais, France, at the end of 2015 and moved in together shortly thereafter. Back then there were about 3,500 refugees in a camp called Jungle and new arrivals every day. In the first few months, they tried to reach UK by climbing on trains and trucks, but in the end they managed to collect money and pay for smugglers. Even then, they failed dozens of times. Since July 2016, all three have been with their relatives in the UK. This picture was taken at their Calais shelter earlier that year. According to Help Refugees, 9,106 men, women, and unaccompanied children were living in the Calais Jungle in tents or temporary shelters they’d build themselves and decorated with blankets. They all had the same goal: to enter the UK. In October 2016 the Jungle was demolished. Now many refugees live in Calais in tents, still trying to cross the border to the UK.
