Aboard the SOS - one woman's story

By Filip Warwick

Those trying to leave Africa or the Middle East by making the journey across the Mediterranean are often saved by the SOS-MSF NGO vessel Aquarius. One such woman was rescued and told her story to Filip Warwick aboard the ship. 30 year old Anne-Sandrine comes from Douala in Cameroon. A mother of two children, this softly spoken woman wanted to share her story as a warning to all Africans and others nationals who are willing to undertake this perilous route migration through Libya and the sea.
