RENATE member Eilis Coe shares with us a significant awareness-raising article entitled The Desperate Journey of a Trafficked Girl, written by Ben Staub and featured in The New Yorker Magazine, 10 April 2017. 
Detailing the struggles of countless thousands of migrants trying to make the perilous journey from Libya across the Mediterranean, journalist Ben Taub taps into the personal experiences of those whom he encountered on his research for the article.
Be sure to access the video clip which features one third of the way through the article. The video features live footage of convoys of trucks crossing the desert, smuggling people and follows with a live- interview with Ben Taub, who recounts his own personal journey in writing the article.
