September 2018: Courtney Bercan sits in a rubber boat that was used in an exhibition about the global refugee crisis. She volunteered as a guide for the Doctors Without Borders traveling exhibit, Forced From Home, to help inform Americans about why people around the world flee their homes and what happens to them as they travel in search of safety.

July 22, 2016: After the Aquarius disembarks 209 people in Trappani, Sicily, Doctors Without Borders and SOS Méditerranée teams take a moment to remember the 21 women and one man who lost their lives on the journey. They say a few words and drop roses into the sea. Photo: Anna Psaroudakis/SOS Mediterranee
