Central Mediterranean population movement: Humanitarian Service Point at sea
In 2021, there was a sharp increase in the number of migrants attempting the deadly Central Mediterranean route. This emergency operation seeks a total of 2.4 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.
