Stories and testimonies of migrants fleeing violence.

On May 27th 2017, a rubber boat with 127 people on board arrived to Zarzis (Tunisia) coming from Libya. The fuel finished after few hours of navigation and for two and a half days they drifted out into the open sea, without eating or drinking. A Tunisian fisherman's boat saw them and alerted the Tunisian Coast Guard who finally rescued them.

The migrants were transfered to the foyer of the Tunisian Res Crescent in Medenine, supported by MSF.
