During a dramatic rescue operation, the ALAN KURDI crew saved 68 lives last Monday. A second rescue operation with 82 people rescued followed a few hours later.

Our only request to the 27 EU member states with 447 million inhabitants was to give these 150 people security and peace.

So far, only Italy has sent aid. We received food and one person was evacuated by the Italian coast guard. Some of the rescued people show clear physical signs of torture from time spent in the civil war-torn country of Libya.

Anna, first officer of ALAN KURDI, and Josefin, part of our medical team, report from the ship.
