2016 turned out to be the deadliest year on the Med. IOM — UN Migration Agency counted 5.022 deaths.
Despite this alarmingly high number, there's still no state rescue program.
Jugend Rettet e.V. (meaning: youth rescues) is a non-profit organisation founded by young people in Summer 2015. With our own ship IUVENTA we conduct sea rescue on the Mediterranean off the Libyan coast. After seven missions in 2016, the IUVENTA is currently in winter storage before she'll get back on the Med in spring 2017. Our crews were able to rescue 6526 people.
Now you have the chance to get more information on us and to get involved yourself. Lisa and Leo will tell you everything you need to know.

All the best, Jugend Rettet
