2015-07-02

This is the image that often comes when immigrants try to cross the Mediterranean. 

Some are fleeing from war, conflict, poverty and persecution. Inside these small boats, they change the course of their lives forever. 

According to the United Nations, most of them are from Afghanistan, Eritrea and Syria. They always seem to be more and more. 

In 2014, during the first six months, an estimated 75,000 migrants tried to make their way across the Mediterranean. This year alone, the number has spiked to about 137,000. 

They try to make their way to European ports to not only find a refuge, but above all else, for the chance of a new life.
