I strongly believe that if the world unites effectively in tackling the reasons that cause people to flee their home countries, then recurring incidents of migrants dying at sea will eventually come to an end. Conflicts and persecutions force thousands of human beings to cross the Mediterranean in ramshackle vessels. Many drown.
Human rights abuses and persecution are contributing to the huge wave of refugees. Factors that trigger this continuous displacement of people from their home countries should be exposed, challenged and eradicated once and for all.
