Lisbeth Sagen Lundin, a volunteer from Norway, hugs a frightened Syrian refugee on a beach near Molyvos, on the Greek island of Lesbos, on October 30, 2015. The woman was on a boat full of refugees that traveled to Lesbos from Turkey. The boat was provided by Turkish traffickers to whom the refugees paid huge sums to arrive in Greece. Lundin is one of hundreds of volunteers on the island who receive the refugees and provide them with warm clothing and medical care before they continue their journey toward western Europe.
