David and his wife Amitu arrived in Tripoli, Libya in the middle of its Arab spring revolution in 2011. Their long and arduous journey started by crossing the Sahara desert from Eritrea, to Sudan into Libya.

The couple faced considerable challenges in their perilous journey as they are both deaf and mute.

In this piece prepared by the UN Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) for the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and adapted by Beng Poblete-Enriquez for UN Radio, we'll hear about David and Amitu's journey.
