After being forced to suspend operations for 9 months, Mo Chara, our rescue boat, will operate once again as part of the Sea Eye 4, in the Central Mediterranean route, to prevent any more lives being needlessly lost in the Mediterranean sea.

Challenge

In 2021 alone, at least 300 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.

Solution

Mo Chara, along with a Refugee Rescue representative, will operate again 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.

Long-Term Impact

In this new chapter in the Central Mediterranean, our mission continues to be the same: preventing loss of life at sea.
