Mothership

By

Muriel Cravatte

In the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, the Ocean Viking crew rescues refugees in mortal danger, huddled in their makeshift crafts, fleeing a Libyan hell. Once rescued, often in perilous conditions, they are welcomed on the ship where they receive first aid and are then accompanied to a safe port.

On this boat, like a refuge within a refuge, is a place of listening and care reserved exclusively for women and children: we call it The Shelter.

For exiles in distress to be rescued in the name of human rights and the law of the sea, a constant tug of war is in play in the Mediterranean between the authorities and humanitarian organisations.
