Nos opérations majeures en Tunisie en 2015
Tunisia - Today (15 September) a group of 16 migrants – among 131 people rescued at sea by Tunisian authorities on 23 August – will be returning home with IOM’s help. Another group of nine migrants who sought IOM assistance will be returning home by the end of the week. Last Friday, seven women from Nigeria and one person from Ghana also were assisted through IOM’s Assisted Voluntary Return program.
For years, Tunisian fishermen have been encountering migrant boats in distress, and saving lives by bringing people onto their fishing boats.
On 30 August, fishermen rescued 130 people from a boat and brought them to the town of Zarzis where they received medical support from an MSF team.
In order to increase their capacity to carry out rescues at sea, MSF recently carried out a six-day training with 116 local fishermen in Zarzis.
