Summary

Can you imagine having to flee your country and leave behind everything you own, including your framed memories? Can you imagine a fire or hurricane destroying your home and all of your belongings? This US-based project offers free family photos to refugees, migrants, asylum seekers, displaced people, and disaster survivors. Retake gives a little bit of hope/joy/dignity in the form of new keepsakes and framed portraits to people who have endured so much and are now rebuilding their lives.

Challenge

When people lose their homes, have to evacuate, or flee from persecution, they also lose their possessions, family heirlooms, and ties to their history. They lose their favorite framed memories. Whether they have lost their belongings because of a disaster like Hurricane Ida in Louisiana, USA or they have had to flee their home country like the Afghan refugees currently being relocated around the world, the result is the same: they have to start over and rebuild.

Solution

When people are resettled into a new country or when they rebuild their lives after surviving a natural disaster, we are able to provide them with new keepsakes in the form of photographs. We offer them free digital photos and free printed photographs that they can proudly hang on their walls or share with their loved ones around the world. Photographs are so important to preserve culture and heritage, and to offer hope. We are based in North Carolina but travel extensively to new communities.

Long-Term Impact

The long-term impact of gifting new keepsakes and family portraits is monumental. Their mental wellness and connection with their culture and communities is benefitted. They also are able to start the process of rebuilding and healing.
