Dying To Reach Europe

Since 2015, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has provided assistance to more than 65,000 refugees, asylum seekers and migrants as they try to reach Europe – in Ethiopia, in Libya and at sea. Every Eritrean interviewed by MSF teams on its search and rescue vessels in the Mediterranean Sea has reported being either a direct victim or a witness to severe levels of violence, including torture, in multiple locations throughout their harrowing journey from Eritrea to Europe.
