9 Months Waiting for Peace is the harrowing story of a Colombian refugee who is granted a 9-month temporary protection order to seek asylum in Spain.
Last year an anti-immigrant, populist party called, “Vox” was voted into power, altering access to public health services and feelings of safety for newly arrived migrants.
As public health specialists struggle to assess the impact of migration amidst a global refugee crisis, the voices of asylum seekers give a portrait of how making it across the border is only a small step towards a life of peace.
