According to a report by the UNHCR and the Center for Mixed Migration (MMC), at least 1,750 people died in 2018 and 2019 from the irregular transitions between East and West Africa and the African Mediterranean coast.

The report, entitled “Nobody cares whether you live or die on this trip,” states that this number kills an average of 72 people per month, making this route one of the “deadliest” for refugees and refugees from all over the world .

In this sense, work, like most people who choose this path, focuses on “indescribable humanity” and “brutality” by traffickers, trade networks, militias and, in some cases, even government officials.
