Launched in 2016 by two young immigrants in the US, the Family Reunions Project uses virtual reality to "transport" immigrants to their home country, the place they cannot return because of economic -- or migratory -- issues.
These are some of the people that have been reunited with their families through this project.
In this still from a video filmed in Salcabamba, Peru, Mama Pitu, the town's oldest resident, at 103, explains how it has changed over the years.
Frisly Sr., the father of one of the project's founders, hasn't seen his childhood friends in over 15 years. During his reunion, the feeling of closeness was so real, that he extended his hand to try to shake that of one of his friends.
