I came from Iraq, then I moved to Syria, then to
Turkey and Greece. I came not to save my life, but
to save my boy, because I love my boy. He is already
blessed from God because the Pope carried him
when he came to Moria.

                My name is 'Beko' and
my son is Tayim.

                

Beko, 28, Iraqi, with his wife and son. Lesbos, May 2016.


Moria is a refugee registration and detention centre on the


Island of Lesbos. The ex-military base, distanced from local


life, is accused of neglecting humanitarian principles.
