As a member of the rescue team, Dan spends the early hours waiting to spot incoming boats on the distant horizon. These boats are packed with terrified refugees making the crossing from Turkey, only a few miles away; a small stretch of sea which has become one of the most dangerous in the world over the past year.
Last year the world woke up to the tragedy that is happening, thanks to the picture of Kurdi (despite years of civil war and millions of refugees already having been forced to flee). If 2015 was the year we came to understand, let's not let this year be the one when we forget. Kurdi was called "Humanity washed ashore" - don't let our humanity wash back out to sea.
