We had no water to wash ourselves, we had very little food, and we were forced to sleep on top of each other. It was very difficult for my daughter—she fell sick many times. There was a lot of violence. I was beaten with bare hands, with sticks, and with guns. If you move, they beat you. If you talk, they beat you. We spent months like that, being beaten every day."

After eight months at sea, 20,129 people rescued, and more than 120 separate search-and-rescue operations, the Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) search and rescue ship Bourbon Argos returned to port for the last time in 2015 on December 30.
