Sidra is an 11-year old refugee from Deir ez-Zor, Syria. Here she walks from the Hungarian town of Hegyeshalom across the border into Austria. <br />
<br />
At the border crossing, she and her family received food and blankets from Hungarian Interchurch Aid, a member of the ACT Alliance. <br />
<br />
They are heading for Germany. "People say Germany is beautiful," she said. "I have cousins there, but I don't remember where they live. Anywhere is fine with me. As long as there is no bombing."<br />
<br />
Hundreds of thousands of refugees and migrants flowed through Hungary in 2015, on their way to western Europe from Syria, Iraq and other countries. <br />
