Open Arms / Migrants Search&Rescue at sea

We are a humanitarian aid NGO based in Spain and Italy. Our main mission is to rescue refugees when they try to escape conflicts, persecution or poverty by crossing the Mediterranean Sea on overcrowded and unsafe boats (mainly from Libia to Italy and from Turkey to Greece).
Since we started in 2015 in Lesbos (Greece) with a small team of lifeguards, 1.8ML people reached Europe by sea, 18K people drowned at sea; 1 in 6 victims is a child.
Now, with the support of private donors and volunteers, we are constantly patrolling the Mediterranean Sea with 2 professionally eqiupped rescue vessels. Until now we have saved over 60.000 people.
