Meet Nadine

Médecins Sans Frontières, in collaboration with other organisations, started search and rescue operations in the Mediterannean sea in 2015 in an attempt to reduce loss of life at sea and provide emergency aid to survivors of perilous boat journeys.

When the Dignity I crew found Nadine on an overcrowded rubber boat attempting the dangerous passage to Europe, she was already in labour.

Astrid, a Médecins Sans Frontières midwife on board the Dignity I, helped Nadine to deliver a healthy baby boy, who she called Thierry.
