Rescued mother and daughter from Mediterranean Sea
Over the past few years many thousands of people have been declared missing or have died while attempting to leave Libya’s shores for Europe.
Operating in international waters since February 2016, the SOS Méditerranée NGO search and rescue ship Aquarius, in partnership with Médecins Sans Frontières, has saved more than 27,000 people.
Here a glimpse of a search and rescue mission.
