Keep Mo Chara afloat

Refugee Rescue's search and rescue boat Mo Chara (My Friend) costs approx. £15k to keep at sea per month in Lesvos. Our team works tirelessly to save lives and are the humanitarian effort on the southern shores of Europe there to protect humans not borders. Your money directly helps keep the rescue boat and skilled crew there to save lives and welcome refugees fleeing war to safe lands. We are a small NGO and your support matters. Refugee Rescue has been on Lesvos since October 2015 and with the help of international artist Jake Chapman we got Mo Chara in January 2016. Since then we have saved over 3500 lives and helped many others. The situation is dire and we need your support to be there to help our fellow humans.

We need you to initiate your own fundraising events that can feed to this page. So far we have had art exhibitions, music gigs, car washes. Use your initiative, this is how Refugee Rescue exists, own initiatives and self organsation. You can help. #togetherwecanhelp #welcomemochara
