For the next couple of weeks, I’ll be on the first Mediterranean Sea mission of 2016, onboard the Phoenix with the SAR team once again – and the rescues began almost immediately (images to follow in my next blog post) upon reaching the ‘Dead Zone‘:
‘Professional search and rescue charity Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS) will enhance their life-saving efforts in the central Mediterranean this year by deploying two ships and two drones. The drones will expand their patrolling area to cover what is called the ‘dead zone’: the fatal few miles from the Libyan shore.’ MOAS.EU
I’ll be updating, with more images and words, as and when I can throughout the mission.
