That thus far in 2016, 7,189 migrants have died attempting to find solace and comfort, is unacceptable.
This year's number of migrants deaths, though the year has not yet ended, represents an increase over the 5,740 deaths recorded in 2015, according to United Nations(UN) data. To this end, the Missing Migrants Project is urging nations to stop counting and to start protecting migrants.
Protection must be accorded to the displaced on land as well as at sea. Human dignity does not end at displacement. So here's to the greater protection of migrants worldwide.
