Franck, 28, who declined to give his full name, survived the shipwreck, as well as kidnap and torture in Libya, the main launching point for tens of thousands of African migrants to cross the Mediterranean to Europe each year.Cameroon, IOM and the European Union have brought more than 1,000 migrants back home from Libya, Mauritania, Mali and Niger since November.Thousands of migrants drown each year trying to cross the Mediterranean in overcrowded boats, with more than 400 deaths on the hazardous route since the start of 2018, IOM said.In that, Franck may benefit from the EU's 3.2 billion euro Trust Fund for Africa, set up in a bid to stem the flow of migrants to Europe with skills training and jobs back home.It is funding a joint initiative with IOM to reintegrate migrants who have returned to Cameroon and help them learn trades and set up businesses with loans.
