Zarzis, Tunisia

Shamseddine Marzouk stands beside the grave of Rose Marie, a young African woman, who drowned when a migrant boat sank off the north African coast. While many migrants are buried anonymously, after DNA material and physical characteristics have been recorded and stored in a database, Rose was identified by other survivors from her boat. Marzouk works as a volunteer for the Red Crescent providing maintenance and helping with the funerals of drowned migrants who increasingly wash up on Tunisian beaches. The bodies of drowned migrants travelling in boats that sunk after departing from Libya often drift through the current to Tunisia.
