"The message is that EMERGENCY is available to help in this situation."
Bader, one of our team members on board Open Arms, sent us this video of the Mediterranean Sea last night.
Just look at it: this is the terrifying frontier that people searching for a better life must cross in order to reach Europe. They travel in packed, rickety boats without any guarantee of reaching their destination alive.
This situation is wrong. EMERGENCY is there because it is the right thing to do.
Bader, Paola, Eleonora: the @emergency_ngo team involved in the search and rescue mission in the Mediterranean.
