The Plight of Kosovo Refugees

Kosovar refugee Agim Shala, age 2, is passed through a barbed wire fence into the hands of grandparents at a camp run by United Arab Emirates in Kukes, Albania. The members of the Shala family were reunited here after fleeing the conflict in Kosovo.
The photo is part of The Washington Post's Pulitzer Prize-winning entry (2000) about the plight of Kosovo refugees. The picture was taken by award winning photojournalist Carol Guzy.

The determination of the parents to let their child have a better future and to what extent they will go through to make that happen. I couldn't find more information on the child in the picture but i hope he survived. Hopefully with Kosovo's newly declared Independence they will finally have peace and there will be no more pictures like this .
