Meet Mahdi.

34 years old and from Tunisia. 

He is not pictured and his name has been changed to protect his identity. 

To reach Lampedusa he crossed the Mediterranean Sea. He spent 20 hours on the open water before he landed in Lampedusa in October 2017.

The rest of the details of his journey are omitted to protect his identity because he is in danger from the Tunisian government.

Mahdi is an amazing human being.
