From the 1st of July until 5th of July our teams rescued 573 children, women and men in distress. After their disembarkation in Augusta, Sicily, on July 9th and 10 our team underwent a 10-day quarantine.
On July 24th our crew on board the Ocean Viking left Sicily, to resume our life-saving mission in the central Mediterranean. Last week our crew engaged in two search operations.
Since the 31st of June 555 people were brought so safety in six different operations.
On board, the physical condition of survivors deteriorated and the situation on board kept worsening over the days. Only after days of waiting, Pozzallo, Sicily, was assigned as a place of safety on Sunday, August 7. In the morning of the next day, the Ocean Viking docked in the port. After four days, all 549 rescued people disembarked.
