Thousands of refugees have already drowned in the Mediterranean Sea trying to escape from war, persecution and poverty in Africa and the Arabian peninsula.
Every year, thousands of people die, trying to reach Europe’s shores – and it’s getting worse each year.
The EU promised to increase help and support but political will and pressure, which were needed to walk the EU’s talk, are missing…
Letting people drown means moral failure and is unacceptable.
In September 2015, Michael Buschheuer, his family and friends founded the non profit organization Sea-Eye e.V. with its purpose and main target to secure maritime escape routes to Europe.
Therefore the MS Sea Eye, a 24 meter long seagoing fishing boat, has been bought and will be refitted during the upcoming months to be geared for its long journey to the lybian coast where lots of refugees are each and every day struggling for survival.
Main target is, to locate refugees and make a rescue possible!
Essential prerequisite for maritime salvage is to send SOS to initiate professional rescue. In the meantime focus has to be on securing the refugees survival
Therefore we´re constantly searching for supporters, sympathizers, donators but also for crew-members who are willing to join us on site. Every helping hand counts is highly appreciated!
To be able to pursue our goal, we´re dependent on donations.
Donations for Sea-Eye e.V. are tax-deductible as Sea-Eye e.V. carries a non-profit status. Of course all donations will be used exclusively for the implementation and execution of this project.
