Out of the 5,386 migrants who died or disappeared in 2017 on the road to exile, 3,119 went missing crossing the Mediterranean Sea for Europe.* These are minimum estimates as many deaths go unrecorded.
Missing Migrants depicts this tragic and sadly habitual scenario. There is not only the loss of human life, but the destruction of the family unit. Integration into the host country becomes more complex if those who are most vulnerable, women and children, find themselves alone.
Letting migrants die at sea is not an option to reduce or solve the problem of migration. The immediate need is to save lives.
