Refugee Rescue's dedicated rescue boat, Mo Chara, in partnership with Sea Eye 4, is tirelessly working to prevent further tragedies in the Central Mediterranean. To sustain our life-saving work we rely on your support. The annual running costs total 100,000. Your donation will directly contribute to covering these expenses, allowing us to continue our crucial efforts to prevent needless loss of life. Every contribution helps us make a significant difference in saving lives at sea.
In 2022, at least 2,211 people have drowned or gone missing in the Central Mediterranean route, the world's deadliest border. As long as there is no option of safe and legal passage to Europe, people will continue to risk their lives. The presence of civil and humanitarian rescue assets are vital due to the systematic omission of assistance by European authorities.
Mo Chara, along with a Refugee Rescue representatives, will operate as part of the Sea Eye 4, as it did for five years before its forced pause in operations. This marks the beginning of a new era for Mo Chara, and it signals our ambition as an organisation to establish, once again, a full time presence in the Mediterranean.
Our mission continues to be the same: preventing loss of life at sea.
