“No border should be more worthy of protection than a human life.”

That’s just one of the many mottos of HuBB – Humans Before Borders, a non-profit organization dedicated to the fight against the inhumane and illegal treatment of migrants and refugees.

This week, in honor of World Children’s Day, HuBB and Galeria Monumental present a photo exhibit by some youngsters who are probably not doing as well as you.

Here’s what they say about it:
“Since August 2019 there has been an enormous raise of migrants and refugees arrivals on Greek Islands (mainly Lesvos, Chios, and Samos).
Consequently, living conditions in the camps are getting worse every day, with increase in the tensions among the population.

The photography project “Through Our Eyes” shows the daily lives of asylum seekers living in the ‘hotspot’ camp on Samos Island, Greece, through their own eyes. Behind the camera, instead of reporters or journalists, we find teenage boys and girls who have been living in this camp for months.

The young photographers are students at the Mazi youth center, run by the NGO Still I Rise. Founded in June 2018 by Nicolò Govoni, Giulia Cicoli and Sarah Ruzek, Mazì provides informal education and psychosocial support for children aged 12 to 17 living in the camp.

The photos show us the daily reality and the emotional struggles of children trapped at the edge of Europe, at the mercy of geopolitical wranglings that take no account of their need to survive, to learn, to flourish, and grow.

During the week of the exhibition, Galeria Monumental will host talks, performances, and gatherings around this topic. We will be raising funds to support Still I Rise and their education program for children.”

FREE ENTRY (but, again, donations are welcome… for the kids).
