A few days after Sea-Eye founder Michael Buschheuer was honored for his courage, negotiations are underway in Berlin on Libya’s future. Sea-Eye is addressing important demands to the German government, as the situation in Libya is forcing many people to flee across the Mediterranean Sea.

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.

At the end of 2019, we look back and see many individual fates that we were fortunately able to help. We would like to introduce four of these people to you and show you what your help can do.

About Sea-Eye e. V.

Association for the rescue of fleeing people in the central Mediterranean

Sea-Eye rescues fleeing people from unseaworthy boats in the Mediterranean. We look for helpless people in distress at sea, and fight against the daily loss of life there. Our activity is an answer to the failed migration policies of the European Union, which is denying its responsibility for the thousands of deaths in its immediate proximity.

With our ship, the ALAN KURDI, we fill a gap in the search and rescue activity on the Mediterranean Sea to save as many people as possible from drowning. Because European states have withdrawn from their responsibility, Sea-Eye pays attention and protects the right to life.

We are a non-profit association, which is religiously and politically independent. Our work is exclusively financed through donations.

 

What we do

  • Save lives
  • Observe and document human rights abuses
  • Distribute life vests for people in distress at sea and evacuate them
  • Provide care for injured people at our sick bay
  • Bring saved people to safety
  • Adhere to the international rules of sea rescues
  • Inform about the situation in the Mediterranean

We would like to thank all our supporters

Special thanks to:

Bishop Kirsten Fehrs

“It is a fundamental commandment of Christian seafaring to save people from distress. In Hamburg and Lubeck, those traditional harbour cities, this is fortunately still a common good. Let us make this the standard again Europe-wide!”

– Bishop Kirsten Fehrs –

Revolverheld

“Neighborly love means for us that, no matter where people come from, what ancestry they have, which skin colour they have, which religion they belong to, we welcome them here with open arms and do not leave them to die miserably in the Mediterranean.”
