Mahmood in waiting

In 2016 Mahmood left Jalalabad, his hometown in Afghanistan, and embarked on a dangerous journey to Europe. After six months he made it to Greece.

Today, with new surveillance technologies being installed at the camp, there are growing fears that the camp community will become completely isolated.
