Richard's story: Richard left his home in Chad in 2017 due to family problems and came to France. He spent 10 months in Libya. During his crossing in June, the boat sank and only 41 of the 117 original people aboard were rescued by the US marines. Coming through Italy, he arrived in France and is now based in Perpignan. He is trying to find a way to continue his higher education studies in either communications or sociology.
