MOAS is a Malta-based registered foundation (VO/0939) dedicated to mitigating the loss of life at sea. We provide professional search and rescue assistance to refugees and migrants in distress at sea.
MOAS strives to draw the shortest line possible between funds received and lives saved. To this end, we keep administration costs to a bare minimum.
We ensure that donations are pumped into the effort to rescue refugees. In 2015, 85% of the funds we received were directly spent on saving lives.
Our network of fundraisers work around the world to make our mission possible. Without your donations, we could not sail. If you are interested in supporting this effort, join us.
“I thought I was going to die – but your people at MOAS saved me and now I have a second life”
