Become a supporting member

For our missions in 2019, we can predict how much money we will need in the coming months. At present, depending on the frequency of emergencies, we estimate an amount of between 110,000 – 130,000 € per month. Included are the missions of Sea-Watch 3, Moonbird and the complete activities of the land team.

To be able to plan safely, it is important for us that you decide to help Sea-Watch with a supporting membership.
