Sea-Eye has been operating off the coast of Africa since April 2016. Our crews have saved more then 13.000 people from drowning since then.
The humanitarian situation in the Western Mediterranean continues to be precarious. Therefore the missions will have to go on in the coming year. Sea-Eye will use the winter months to overhaul and modernise the two boats in Malta.
Sea-Eye activists all work without pay. The crew members even pay for their own flights to Malta. And yet the missions cost a lot of money: for diesel, provisions, communication, medical supplies, rescue materials and repairs.
