Spain’s maritime rescue service has recovered the bodies of five migrants who died attempting to cross the Mediterranean Sea in a small boat.
Ermes II, a support project for the Assisted Voluntary Return (AVR) of citizens from Morocco, Tunisia, Senegal and Albania, is underway in Italy.
Spain’s maritime rescue service says the bodies of seven African migrants have been found dead along the Strait of Gibraltar since Friday.
The countries of North Africa are discovering themselves unexpectedly as destinations of immigration. Indeed, the migrants in the Magreb countries are hundreds of thousands.
It is not unusual that among the migrants who risk their lives to cross the desert and the sea there are young graduates and highly skilled professionals. A real human wealth that leaves the continent. Some others decided to stay in Africa and build their future in the midst of their people.
They are young and smart. They choose to stay in Africa and create their own job, their own company. They are the finalists of the Anzisha Prize.
