“Mental health care is a space of love for people who haven’t received much. Especially here, there aren’t many places where people can feel safe to be themselves; to receive attention and love. It’s nice when you see people that are having a really bad time, for whom nothing is good in their lives or their environment, be able to see the change in their lives. That makes my job worth it,” said Ámbar Assaf (final photograph) of her work with @doctorswithoutborders.
Central American refugees face extreme hardship and trauma on their journey to the U.S. The violence and uncertainty they experience leaves a lasting mark on their mental health.
Families face new challenges at the U.S. Border. Some fleeing violence have been turned over to Mexican authorities by the U.S. Border patrol when they’ve asked for asylum. Some face deportations the countries they’re fleeing.
One man I met had fled Honduras with his pregnant wife after reporting a crime. His life was threatened. When his wife attempted to turn herself into U.S. authorities and claim asylum they held her and turned her into Mexican immigration police who threaten to deport her.
I was lucky enough to meet many of these kind people, and @doctorswithoutborders staff as they treated their physical and mental health issues. #msf #doctorswithoutborders #immigration

Bill Beard was kind to open up his home to @ngphotocamp students today. He lost his home during Hurricane Harvey.

A handful of days together, and off we go again. #freelancelyfe

Post 2 of 2. It been an inspiring week with this amazing group of @ngphotocamp students in Washington D.C. In a time when the United States’ future feels as if it’s being navigated by the reigns of hate, these immigrants represent what it means to be American. #dcphotocamp
