Project Report | Mar 10, 2016
Call to action resulted in more help at sea

By Emma Bajardi | Project Manager

Between November and March we had 15 volunteers at sea. One of them, a senior anesthesiologist, served over one month on board nave Aviere and recently served other three weeks on board of Nave Cavour, flagship of the Italian Navy. Francesca, midwife, after a long term mission aboard Nave San Giusto and San Giorgio in 2014 and 2015, is now back at sea for a month.

During Holiday Season patrolling and rescue operations didn't stop. Videopgrapher Diletta Grella spent new Year's with the crew of Patroller Bettica and our voluteer pediatrician Gianpiero, in the middle of the sea, ready for the next emergency call. Please watch the video, and learn more about Fondazione Rava's project and the collaboration with the Italian Navy.

We are currently selecting and organizing teams for the spring and beginning of summer, plannig to deploy more personnel on board of more units. Our call to action and the word of mouth among our medical voluteers were succesful. We will be able to support the Italian Navy in the months to come with motivated and highly skilled doctors, nurses and midwives.
