For people migrating through Central America to the United States, the only certainty is suffering. From crossing treacherous rivers and hiding from predatory gangs in the jungles of the Darién Gap to immigration fines in Honduras and robbery and extortion in Guatemala, those who flee their countries in search of a better life often face extreme danger and violence. But this is just one part of their story.
This gallery of drawings by people who received care at mobile clinics run by Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in Honduras and Guatemala show how people forced from their homes also dream, create, and love. Despite the hardships, these images also represent moments of happiness, connection, and resilience along their journeys.
