22. November 2019 366 Humans rescued

The last days in the central Mediterranean were eventful: Since the beginning of the week 366 people could be rescued from drowning in 5 rescue missions, only yesterday three missions took place. For the time being, the people are safely on board of the Ocean Viking, the Aita Mari and the Open Arms. Nevertheless it is always the same: they need a Safe Harbour as soon as possible to avoid getting into trouble.

At the moment the good weather is leading to a significant increase in departures from Libya. All the happier we are that Alan Kurdi is now on her way back to the Central Mediterranean. Every ship is needed!
