MOAS (Migrant Offshore Aid Station) provides direct support to refugees at risk in the Mediterranean see. Nearly every day people try to cross over to Europe to escape violence, persecution, and hardship from places as far off as Eritrea, Somalia, and more recently Syria. Nearly every day men, women, children and babies die on this journey.
We cannot watch and let this tragedy happen right in front of our eyes, right in the same sea where we have spent endless summers of fun and memorable days.
MOAS consists of international humanitarians, security professionals, medical staff, and experienced maritime officers who have come together to help prevent further catastrophes at sea.
