Last night, Finding Home won First Prize at World Press Photo in the Innovative Storytelling category.
From the start, this journey has been a team effort, so I'm thinking of all of those who couldn't be here with us: @kirapollack @justine_s_123 @lynseyaddario and @timklimowicz
It was an honor to work with you every day, you gave a girl from Modena the opportunity of a lifetime.

Since September, TIME has been following three Syrian families as they sought asylum in Europe, as part of the yearlong Finding Home project, starting with the birth of their children in the bleak refugee camps of northern Greece. Pictured here, baby Heln, just a few weeks after she was born. Her mother, Taimaa, thinks Heln looks just like her father, Mohannad, with her beautiful black hair. Hours after Heln was born, Taimaa started worrying about what it would be like to live in a refugee camp with a baby. “I feel that while I am sleeping in the tent there isn’t enough oxygen inside. How is a newborn supposed to handle this?” You can see Taimaa and baby Heln’s journey at

Πανω απο 100 Συριοι προσφυγες φτανουν στον σιδηροδρομικο σταθμο θεσ/νικης σημερα το βραδυ στις 10.30. Χρειαζονται επειγον τως βοηθεια και καταλύματα, πολλοι ειναι κ απο το Αφριν. Οσοι μπορουν να βοηθησουν, να φιλοξενήσουν ατομα η να προσφερουν βοηθεια ας σπευσουν ειναι αμεση αναγκη. 🚨🆘 EMERGENCY APPEAL 🆘🚨 My organization has been informed that over 100 Syrian refugees will be released from detention on the Greek-Turkish border and transported by train to Thessaloniki tonight. They will arrive at 10:30 pm and they have no shelter, food or information. The influx of refugees will include many highly vulnerable families. Unfortunately, no formal actors will be present. My organization will help register people with the UNHCR for housing, provide valuable information on available community services, and facilitate access to asylum procedures. I am also personally trying to find out where all these people can stay for the night. The situation looks grim, unfortunately. This is also happening at an inconvenient time, as it will be Easter Weekend in Greece, and government offices will be closed Fri-Mon, with reduced hours at supermarkets and other stores.

Five years after leaving Syria, Ilham and her family have finally received their residency cards. After their asylum application to Lithuania was denied, the family applied for asylum in Greece. They’ve been in Greece for 2 years and we’ve been following Ilham’s story since she was 9 months pregnant in Oreokastro refugee camp in Thessaloniki. Baby Faraj born on October 2, 2017 in Thessaloniki. Like many Syrian refugees, Ilham and her husband Minhel love Greece but they don’t know how they will be able to raise the family if they can’t find a job - the asylum status in Greece comes with free health care and education but without financial support. Pictured here, a family photo outside the Thessaloniki’s asylum office after getting their residency cards

This is the team of @findinghome taking over the Merck feed. TIME’s Africa bureau chief Aryn Baker meets Nour’s baby for the first time. We began covering Nour’s journey from inside the refugee camps in Thessaloniki, Greece, where few reporters have had access. Nour, a refugee from Deir ez-zor and a first-time mother, spent most of her pregnancy with no water for washing, sporadic electricity and no heat, despite freezing temperatures.
