Dance for Joy on the Aquarius

From SOS Mediterranee. Saved from a shipwreck on Wednesday, these African women mostly from Ivory Coast and Cameroon danced and sang hymns aboard the NGO rescue ship Aquarius when the coast of Sardinia, where they were being taken, came into site. Hosanna, Alleluia, they sing. They have no idea how hard it is going to be and how poorly they may be treated by the Europe they long dreamed of. They don't know that southern Sicily and Spain and Greece have no jobs for them. That they may be stick in an overcrowded Center for Identification and Expulsion for months, like prisoners again. But at least they are alive.
