Mexico, 2016: [NAME CHANGED] 16-year-old Maria (right) and her younger siblings, Hondurans trying to reunite with their family in the United States of America, travel through the municipality of Tultitlán in the State of Mexico. Thousands of children are fleeing Central America for the United States every month, to escape brutal gangs and stifling poverty. Many of them are unaccompanied. All of them risk being kidnapped, trafficked, raped or killed during the dangerous journey.
