SOS MEDITERRANEE

Mission

Since 2014, nearly 20,000 people have died trying to cross the Mediterranean, not to mention all those who have disappeared without witnesses. 88% of them were trying to flee Libya to reach Italy, making the central Mediterranean the deadliest migration route in the world.

SOS MEDITERRANEE was created in 2015, born from a movement of European citizens determined to act in response to the tragedy of repeated shipwrecks at sea, .

Convinced that it is not acceptable to let thousands of people drown before our eyes, at the gates of Europe, the association continues its fight to save lives at sea, protect survivors and raise public awareness about this issue. 

Thanks to the exceptional engagement of European civil society, SOS MEDITERRANEE is carrying out rescue operations in international waters off the Libyan coast. 

With the Aquarius before and now with the Ocean Viking, the search and rescue teams of SOS MEDITERRANEE and Médecins Sans Frontières, our medical partner on board, have been able to rescue and treat more than 30,000 people since the start of operations in February 2016. 23% of these survivors were minors, more than 80% of whom were unaccompanied.

The rental of a rescue ship like the Ocean Viking, capable of sailing in both winter and summer, the crew, fuel, and all the equipment necessary to take care of the survivors, cost 14,000€ per day. 98% of SOS MEDITERRANEE is financed by private donations.

We are now launching a call for support and mobilization to all civil society actors : individuals, NGOs, foundations, patrons, companies and public authorities. This action aims to provide the association with the means to attend to thousands of men, women and children and continue its rescue mission in this immense area in need.
