From mid-2015, this foundation started to help 'refugees'. At Lesbos people were provided with dry clothing, water and transport. A few months later they started 'Search and rescue' missions, initially between Turkey and Greece. [...] The Boat Refugee Foundation is currently helping on the waters between Italy and Libya. The foundation supports the Italian government with a specially equipped rescue vessel.
The NGOs trying to save the lives of migrants crossing the Mediterranean, Ukrainian director Oleg Sentsov and Moroccan protest leader Nasser Zefzafi are the three finalists of the European Parliament's 2018 Sakharov Prize.
