Like many others in his country and around the world in a similar situation, Pinteris first saw this crisis as an invasion. However, he now knows that these women and children are just trying to survive, so he wants to help them. And many people also have changed their opinion about refugees. "After having experienced what we have this year, with women and children in the water screaming for help, many people's world views have changed," Pinteris says."We never know what the day will be like. It's really difficult. There's a lot of stress. When you're the only fisherman around and there are people in the water everywhere around you, you panic," he says.
