There’s no shortage of heart wrenching photographs from the Syrian refugee crisis, but the pictures that have moved me most are of the delicate, tiny babies: the one born on a rocky beach on the Greek coast; the five-day-old newborn handed from person to person off a raft; the week-old baby wrapped tightly to his mother as she walks for miles along the train tracks in Hungary. What has become of these little people? In the midst of so much chaos, hundreds of babies are being born in Greek hospitals and cared for by families that have nothing but an unknown future. In 2016, TIME launched a year-long multimedia project on the refugee crisis told through the lives of three babies: Rahaf, Heln, and Faraj. Through reporting, video and photography, Lynsey Addario, Aryn Baker and Francesca Trianni have been reporting on the lives from the moments of birth, and through the uncertain future while searching for home.
VIDEO: TIME's video producer Francesca Trianni has been on the ground from the beginning telling the intimate video stories in short and long form published on TIME's website and social channels. Here's the trailer.
@FINDINGHOME: TIME launched a special Instagram feed (@FindingHome) dedicated to the project to tell the stories daily, in real time. We have built an audience of over 16 thousand followers.
SPLIT RUN COVER: For TIME's December 25th issue, we launched four separate covers, each with a different refugee baby that we'd be following over the course of the year.
MAGAZINE: TIME has published 6 print stories written by Aryn Baker accompanied by photographs by Lynsey Addario.
