A different Christmas.. maybe the real one!
3 o´clock Christmas morning. We have a rendez vous on Sea with 2 Italian Coast Guard Vessels between Lampedusa and Malta. Rescued in darkness we will transfer the 112 children women and men to two speed boats in the darkness of this morning. They will bring them on land. Aquarius will immediately return to the rescue zone off Libya. In 16 hours we should be back there. Weather conditions could allow again small rubber boats to leave the coast of Libya – with no real chance to make it. We will have active Christmas days it seems… Wish you all some relaxed days.
