Volunteers waiting to help Syrian refugees ashore in Efthalou, on the Greek island of Lesvos. The refugees are being trafficked from Turkey in inflatable boats. They are fleeing the civil war in Syria, which began in 2011. Photographed in September 2015, when up to 4,000 refugees a day were landing on the island, overwhelming the authorities.
