Sea Rescue Operations on the Mediterranean Sea with our ship “Alan Kurdi”

Lampedusa, Malta

We have sent one rescue ship under Germany’s flag into the Mediterranean, the ALAN KURDI, in order to help people in distress at sea. But we need donations. Will you help us?

About this project

We are acting, because no one should drown at our external borders! We are on site to save people from drowning and to inform the public.

While the route over the Mediterranean grew deadlier in absence of rescue ships, we were forbidden from helping with Sea-Eye and Seefuchs. Now, we sent a ship under the German flag into the Mediterranean and urgently need donations to be able to conduct all planned missions. We want to continue rescuing in 2020.

This is about saving lives! To that end, we bought the research ship “Professor Albrecht Penck” and named it ALAN KURDI. The family of the deceased boy baptised the ship in February 2019 in Spain. 

Our ship is the first among aid organisations to hoist the German Flag and it is listed in the ship registers of Stralsund. Our flagging and ship certificates are valid. The authorities permitted us to leave Germany and support us from now on during rescue missions. Thus, the crews of the ALAN KURDI could save many human lives across ten missions. 

Pitch in now so that we can send the ALAN KURDI into action further on!

About the organisation: Saving lives at sea is a human right. So Hence, it is sufficient to just be human in order to have the right to be saved from acute mortal danger. Consequently, from human rights follow human duties. This is why Sea-Eye e.V. exists. This is where we act. Over the last four years, our association partook in the rescue of 15.056* lives.
