We set sail again and travel to the central Mediterranean to continue our life-saving mission. For this we chartered a new ship, the Ocean Viking. In the past months, we have not only strengthened our operations on land and reinforced our observance of the Law of the Sea, but also sought a new ship.
The Ocean Viking is more robust, faster and younger than the Aquarius. To be able to sail in the Mediterranean, we had to rebuild and adapt the ship ourselves in the past weeks. We have installed several emergency shelters for the survivors from distress, installed a clinic for our medical cooperation partner Doctors Without Borders, and install storage space for our rescue equipment and supplies.
But the deployment on site is not cheap. We were able to charter the ship and the professional equipment needed, but now we are need of your support: because every trip and every rescue operation is expensive. Please support us with a donation. We need your support now, let us save lives together at sea!
