“I am Farah. I am 18 years old. I left my homeland Somalia to Kenya when I was 3 years old. I left Kenya two years ago and went through several countries and the Sahara desert towards Libya. I have been in prison. I left Libya to cross the sea. It was a matter of life or death: Malta chose me” - Abdi Farah Abdullahi (Farah’s unknown destination)
