What can I hope for by Raphael Girardot, Vincent Gaullier
What is it about ? In a humanitarian camp opened in Paris, refugees are in transit. In this center of “first reception” they rest from the street where they ended on their arrival in France. Barely a few days of humanity that we spend with them.

At that time, more than 4,000 migrants were in the streets of Paris without resources. The state, which is responsible for receiving these refugees, does not give in and allows unacceptable areas with insecure areas to settle, which ultimately requires humanitarian intervention.
