Successful Transfer of All 265 Rescued People Onboard the Open Arms Vessel, Despite Adverse Weather Conditions
We are happy that the people rescued during Mission 79 can now receive the treatment and protection to which they are entitled.
EMERGENCY has been treating victims of war and poverty since 1994, and runs programmes for migrants and refugees in Iraq and Southern Italy. We firmly believe that every human being has the right to seek refuge, as well as live freely without being judged on their race, religion or nationality.
EMERGENCY UK strongly condemns Donald Trump’s anti-Muslim, anti-refugee ban. We hope that the UK government will take a strong stand against this policy and we want to say, louder than ever, that refugees are welcome.
Let’s stop drawing borders. #MuslimBan
