Every year thousands of people die while attempting to cross the Mediterranean Sea.
Many of us are helpless or indifferent. We can help these people. You can help these people as well.
These women, these children, these men, have fled difficult, dangerous and inhumane conditions and want to be able to live in dignity, in safety.
They leave the North African coast aboard makeshift boats, which are more often than not able to make the crossing. These people will ultimately find themselves in mortal danger when their boats break down, and begin to sink in the middle of the sea.
It is extremely difficult to locate these small boats, which can carry hundreds of people, and too often the vessels able to help them arrive too late.
We refuse to accept that these people should face this terrible fate alone and we choose to act to save lives.
Our mission is to provide air support to help rescue people in distress at sea.
