©Natalia Ortiz Mantilla/DPA/MAXPPP ; 21 October 2018, Colombia, Barranquilla: Alfonso Mendoza from Venezuela gets up at the counter of a small shop with the help of both arms. Mendoza was born without legs, but he never let himself be stopped. The 25-year-old is a skateboarder, surfer and rapper and has recently become a father. Like hundreds of thousands of his compatriots, the Venezuelan fled from hunger, misery and oppression in his native Venezuela.
