We Make It or We Die – BBC Africa Eye documentary


BBC News Africa

Published on Jun 14, 2021

Every year tens of thousands of Ethiopians begin the perilous 2,000 kilometre trek from their home country to Saudi Arabia, attempting to cross mountains, deserts, the Red Sea and even a war zone.

Some of these migrants describe how they face robbery, extortion and starvation in temperatures of around 50 degrees.

Many die along the way, while others fall short and end up begging on the streets.

BBC Africa Eye brings you the story of some of those who risk it all.

*** Africa Eye brings you original, investigative journalism revealing secrets and rooting out injustice in the world’s most complex and exciting continent. Nothing stays hidden forever.
