Survivors on board the search and rescue ship Sea-Watch 4 finally offered a port of safety in Palermo, Italy
After 10 days since first requesting a place of safety, survivors on board the ship run by MSF and Sea-Watch were finally offered to a place of safety in Palermo, Italy.
There are currently 353 people rescued on board. MSF humanitarian affairs advisor Hassiba Hadj-Sahraoui explains the urgent situation in the Central Mediterranean Sea, additional challenges brought on by the pandemic, and what she has witnessed over the last few weeks.
