Finally I found some time to go through the images of my last trip to Istanbul. Take some time and dive into the streets of this fascinating city. Click on the image below to enter the full gallery.
Zijad, an 8 year old boy from Syria’s Idlib region and another victim of war, recently fled with his family by crossing illegally the border into Turkish Hatay province. In this image he is seen being examined by an Austrian plastic surgeon inside the Emel hospital at the Syrian border prior to an operation necessary to engraft skin from other parts of his body.
