The German NGO migrant rescue ship Sea-Watch 3 carried out six dramatic rescue operations during its three-week mission in the central Mediterranean in July/August 2021.
Miraculously, there were no fatalities during these operations on the world’s deadliest migration route, though several migrants were found to be severely injured and had to be medevaced to Malta and the Italian island of Lampedusa. The Sea-watch 3 brought 257 migrants to Sicily, while several others it had helped rescue were taken to European shores by Italian authorities and another NGO ship.
