After a three-week break, the rescue ship of the German aid organisation Sea-Eye is headed for the Libyan coast to monitor international waters. The ship, which was recently renamed “Alan Kurdi” in remembrance of the three-year-old Syrian toddler who drowned in the Mediterranean, is now the last remaining relief organisation ship operating in the central Mediterranean. According to Sea-Eye, the new mission was only made possible by a donation from Cardinal Marx, a leading German bishop. Liberties wishes Sea-Eye’s crew good luck in their rescue efforts.
