Joy is an undocumented migrant living in the Netherlands. She said: “I decided to go somewhere after work. The weather was warm and humid. The traffic was terrible. Many people went to the beach, but I preferred to go into the woods which was safer and more relaxing. I felt more secure being surrounded by trees than by people. I was sure 100% that trees had no coronavirus”.


This material is part of the Covid Chronicles from the Margins project, funded by The Open University and The Hague. The project aims to highlight the impact of the pandemic on refugees, asylum seekers & undocumented migrants.
