On board the Aquarius where Doctor without borders and Sos Mediterranee work. a big colored ship, the sea, the sun, fishes...
it's a kid drawing
looking more closely, near the fishes, you can spot a person: wearing a red jacket...a life jacket.
The children on board the Aquarius tell a story: their story
white paper and colored pencils to draw what has been but even what in their dream will be.
I had the luck and the privilege of being on board of this ship which is the first refuge - ship that becomes home - for some hours - few nights.
Interweaving stories, feelings that can be read in faces and eyes.
I'l tell you their stories - I'll show you the faces of those who decided to live a mission more than doing a job.
Médecins Sans Frontières - their names are Luca, Seraina Eldada, Stefano Spinelli, Lauren King, Federico Saracini, Elisa, Tiziana Cauli, Giorgia Girometti and all the people I met.
But now I look this drawing again and I hope in a future where these kids can draw a sea full of colored fishes and no one to save anymore.
