Rescue of a third rubber boat on Wednesday, November 1st.

Mediterranean migration

Every year, thousands of people fleeing war, persecution and poverty at home attempt the treacherous journey across the Mediterranean. Countless lives are lost on the way.

Closing safe and legal options for people to each Europe pushes them further into people smugglers' networks. In Libya, the detention of migrants and refugees is a thriving enterprise of kidnapping and extortion.

MSF works in Search and Rescue, and provides assistance to people in Libyan detention centres and those arriving in Europe.
