The rescue ship ALAN KURDI left the port of Palermo on Friday afternoon and is on its way to the central Mediterranean. The goal: Saving Lives. Because a lot of people are still trying to flee across the Mediterranean.
On the second Christmas evening, the crew of the rescue vessel ALAN KURDI received an emergency call. The German flagged rescue ship had only reached the Libyan search and rescue zone a few hours earlier. Not a minute too soon, because a storm is coming.
At Christmas the last rescue operation of the ALAN KURDI starts from Palermo. Mayor Leoluca Orlando said goodbye to the crew personally and wished them a successful mission. Sea-Eye is currently building its new sea rescue base in Palermo, so that future operations will start here.
