Last year was the deadliest ever for the Mediterranean and Aegean. But as bad as it was, without the efforts of volunteer lifesavers, it would have been even worse. The Association for Rescue At Sea (AFRAS) was proud to be able to support volunteers who saved over 5,000 lives.
Attached is a briefing sheet from the International Maritime Rescue Federation about the efforts we supported to establish and improve sustainable volunteer maritime rescue capabilities in the region.
Well done to all.
Let’s all resolve to do even better this year.
