This photo was shared by Jack, a migrant worker who is currently living in the Netherlands.  

“This is the window of my room that I am renting out. I live on the third floor of the building overlooking from the window some houses in my neighborhoods. During the lockdown, I often opened it every morning especially when the weather was sunny and humid. I stayed in my room most of the days during the lock down. Whenever I open the window to see the sky I always ask myself this question: ooh…God! When this pandemic crisis will end?”
