EU and Turkey have until 20th June to agree on the various terms laid out by each. This bartering and system of blackmail means the refugees are in an even more desperate and dangerous situation. The refugees are forced to take more dangerous routes and risking their lives through unsafe passages.
REFUGEE RESCUE and our boat Mo Chara is still on shift with only a couple of other teams on the ground in Mytilini, Lesvos. The refugee boats come in more sporadically. One night this week we were alerted to 2 boats. This boat (below) landed safely and had 49 people, mostly woman and 15 children! Mo Chara and the rescue crews are still working every night to stop more drownings at sea.
