About this image

Afghan refugees are seen on a beach near the city port of Calais, a hot spot for illegal migration in France. With the reinforcement of the border by the French and British authorities, thousands of migrants have found themselves stranded along the French coast, stuck in limbo. Without documents and job possibilities, their life revolves around the so called 'jungle’ migrant camp in Calais.
