LIFELINE: Refugees at Sea
Watch the FULL @vicenews documentary and extended interviews with @MSF_UK staff and Syrian #refugees

Desperate to escape conflict and poverty, thousands of migrants and refugees attempt the perilous journey to Europe each year, with many crossing the Mediterranean Sea from North Africa in rubber dinghies and wooden boats.

In the wake of the decommissioning of Mare Nostrum, a search and rescue operation run by Italy, the humanitarian organization Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), launched their own vessel, named the Bourbon Argos, to find those stranded at sea and save those in trouble on one of the deadliest routes to Europe.

On board the vessel, refugees and migrants are provided with medical aid, food, and shelter, then brought safely to Italian shores. Having survived life in Libya, ruthless treatment by smugglers, and horrific conditions aboard flimsy boats, once aboard the Bourbon Argos they face yet more uncertainty as they approach Europe.

VICE News teamed up with MSF to document these search and rescue missions in the Mediterranean and speak to rescued refugees and migrants, hearing about the suffering they have endured in their attempts to reach a new life.

Desperate to escape the conflict in #Syria, thousands of Syrian #refugees attempt the perilous journey to Europe each year, with many crossing the #Mediterranean Sea from North Africa in rubber dinghies and wooden boats. 

In this video we hear from two MSF staff about their experience rescuing 600+ refugees and migrants from a wooden fishing boat - many of whom had made the perilous journey from Syria.
