In Pursuit of Comfort- The Journey through ‘Hell’ to Europe

Many people may not know about the deadly transit from Africa to Europe sought by many youth in pursuit of a better life … Guess what? Many of them die in the process while others are either jailed or lost forever. They travel through perils and risks of starvation, dehydration and death.
