Irish independent photographer Mark Condren captures powerful images of people fleeing Ukraine and cross borders to neighboring countries.
Condren has taken particularly striking photographs of the faces of children forced from their homes as a result of Russia’s invasion of the country.
The portraits show some small children at the border swaddled in layers of warm clothing with several cuddly teddy bears and hot drinks.
Their innocent faces highlight the reality of the situation and the devastation caused.
Ireland will take in 100,000 Ukrainian refugees as they flee the Russian invasion.
The Irish Red Cross says there have been nearly 14,500 commitments for accommodation from Irish people.
Last week, the Government set up an online portal in conjunction with the charity for those willing to house refugees.
The portal allows people to register their interests, both available and any vacant accommodation they may have.
