1. February 2020 363 people waiting for a Safe Harbour – Open the ports!

In 72 hours, the Open Arms has saved 365 people from drowning in five operations. After 2 medical evacuations, it is now waiting with 363 rescued people on board for the assignment of a port of safety.
The Open Arms now urgently needs a port of safety!
Despite the “Malta Agreement”, it is still unclear when and where a port of safety will be assigned – this must be changed!
OPEN THE PORTS!
