India – West Bengal: A photo of Krisha Ahir, 30, a former tea garden worker at Red Bank Tea Estate, in the Dooars region. Five years ago, when the tea garden was closed, Ahir decided to emigrate in order to support his one-year-old son and his aging parents. He was supposed to go to the state of Haryana to work in a poultry farm, but soon after he reached there he disappeared. His parents haven't had any news of him for the past four years.
