The Vicious Sea
Since 28 November, MSF and Greenpeace teams have assisted hundreds of people, dozens of them from boats in obvious distress. Teams will help people on boats in distress and provide medical assistance once they land. We believe that those with the capacity to help should do whatever they can. We have brought our maritime experience to this collaboration with MSF in the hope of saving lives.
