More than 300,000 people seeking safety and a better life have crossed the Mediterranean Sea to Europe so far this year. For those who survive the dangerous crossing, the ordeal is by no means over. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is providing search and rescue assistance on the sea, as well as aid for those who make it to the other side.
