“Every day, around the world, hundreds of people embark on perilous journeys. Fleeing conflict, persecution or poverty in their countries, they risk their lives in search of a brighter tomorrow.
For many, the journey turns into an ordeal. Some reach their destinations, others disappear without a trace. They may have to cross regions where conflict and other forms of violence are rife and deal with situations that seriously affect their physical and mental health. The International Committee of the Red Cross, along with the National Societies, is helping the most vulnerable migrants.”
