Your donation for Sea-Watch

Sea-Watch has been active in the central Mediterranean since 2015 to rescue people in distress at sea. We stand in solidarity with people on the move.

In 2023, we have been involved in the rescue of over 1,400 people. In addition, our two reconnaissance aircraft have been able to coordinate countless rescues from the air and document human rights violations.

Thanks to your donation, we can continue our operations at the world’s deadliest border this year and stand up for safe and legal escape routes!

With €50 you finance hot meals for 100 guests on board. A meal usually includes rice, beans, and spinach.

With €100 we can provide 3 of our guests with a new set of clothes. This bundle includes a warm sweater, pants, a T-shirt, socks and underwear.
