In Conversation With: IFRC Delegate Rosemarie North
Nearly 65 million people are forcibly displaced worldwide, fleeing violence and conflict in places like Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. Increasing numbers of migrants and refugees are making the treacherous journey across the Mediterranean to Europe; according to UNHCR more than 300,000 in 2016 alone. They come for a safer, more secure life, but the trip itself is anything but: traveling in unseaworthy vessels and deflating dingheys through dangerous waters without navigation or adequate supplies. In this edition of In Conversation With Series, IFRC Delegate Rosemarie North speaks with Intercross about life at sea, some of the violence these people are desperately fleeing, and how the Red Cross is helping.
