Safety, Support and Solution II
Since 2018, the Safety, Support and Solutions (SSS II) programme has been protecting migrants along the Central Mediterranean route, the deadliest route for migrants worldwide, particularly focusing on on victims of trafficking, unaccompanied children, and migrants in very vulnerable situations. Through the SSS II programme, IOM carries out search & rescue operations in the Sahara desert, and so far 35,000 migrants in extremely vulnerable situations has been provided with critical life-saving support.
