The flight of hope is landing to Burkina Faso. And Alima is very happy to find back her family. Gone in adventure for the Libyan petro-dollars, she was very far to imagine the chores and hard time that she’ll go through. A job? Yes she got one but in Libya work doesn’t always mean collecting money. This country is like ruled by nobody. Polices forces are harassing migrants.
If you want to move from a place to another, it is very risky. Forces will arrest you and take everything you have. They will sometime ask you to pay a huge amount of money before being free and if you don’t fulfil they need you’ll be beaten. They took my passport and I came with empty pockets. When you work there, you will not be paid. I worked for many months there they did not pay me. Said Alima
Tortures and other human right violations each of the hundred and fifty Burkina citizens knows what is about. So they decided to come back to their sweet and warmly home and break with the daily fear. And this has been possible thanks to support of the international Organization of Migration and to Burkina Faso embassy to Tripoli.
Now Alima is back to home, she and the others will fill the formalities and be transported to their temporary home at Somgande for a better care before joining definitively their home. And for this purpose they’ll be receive a financial support in the coming days.
