“IT WAS THE BADDEST
DAY OF MY LIFE.”
“My name is Khadra, I am 18 years old. I had to flee from Somalia to Europe by boat. I left my country in May 2016. I came through Ethiopia, Sudan to Libya and finally to Italy. It was early in the morning,
dark. I felt down for many times. Everybody was running to the boat. I was not able to run, a boy helped me to get to the boat. There were like 300 people, the boat was very small. We were 23 hours on the boat. The weather
that good. It was so wavy, windy. Everybody was screaming, pregnant women, kids crying everybody was screaming: „We need food. We need something to drink“. All I was seeing were the waves of the water, if you
look side to
all water. It was really sad. There was a time when I lost hope, I thought I already died, I thought I never see this world again.
No-one died from our boat. We all got rescued.”
