Central Mediterranean population movement: Humanitarian Service Point at sea

In 2021, there has been a sharp increase in the number of migrants attempting the deadly Central Mediterranean route. This Emergency Appeal, now extended until 31 December 2021, seeks a total of 2 million Swiss francs to enable the IFRC to provide humanitarian services on the sea section of this route. The IFRC is working in partnership with SOS Mediterranée with the objective of reducing human suffering and preventing loss of life through a fully able-to-assist rescue ship in the Central Mediterranean.
