Children from Aleppo sit on the street outside a registration centre for migrants and refugees in Preševo, southern Serbia, on October 5, 2015. After registering, the refugees here are given a 72-hour permit to travel onwards through Serbia to Croatia.
On their journey from Syria they endured a night rough sleeping in a forest, were squeezed into the back of a small van with 42 adults and 7 children. Their father, Khaled, said that while people in Serbia had been "very kind" to them, they were struggling due to a severe lack of infromation. Khaled said they had left Syria because there was no hope. "You can get used to war, but when you lose your hope you have to leave. It's not important if have you fear in your heart. When you lose hope you lose everything." He added. "Syrians are bleeding, they're dying. We pray to god that you can do something to help for our human rights. "
