Storyboard Text

  • I am sure my mother and sister are alive 
  • I was born in Iran along with my  mother and sister
  • We sailed off from the Turkish coast heading for Samos Island in Greece. Our boat sank at high seas on 11 July 2014, and my mother and sister are missing.
  • The past ten days were the most agonizing days of my life. On 10 July, along with with my mother Fatme and my sister Shokoufeh, we sailed off in a 12 meter boat after having paid 9,000 Euro for the three of us. It was overcrowded as the smugglers had crammed around 40 men, women and children on that little boat.
  • I was very desperate. In the sea, the currents were so strong that I could hardly swim. It was only until several hours later, namely on Friday 11 July at noon, that I along with another, almost unconscious passenger, were spotted by an Italian sailing boat and were transferred to Chios Island [Greece]. Other survivors were brought to Samos. Fifteen Syrians and Afghans have been rescued. 
  • As for my missing mother and sister, another passenger who left the boat after me told me that they were not trapped in the cabin. Since they had very good life jackets, they must have survived. I am sure they are alive. I will not abandon the search. I expect and hope for good news. But even if the news were bad I still want to know!
