More migrants for Europe: Catholic dioceses donate for another “Sea-Eye” ship

REGENSBURG. Three Catholic dioceses have promised the migrant aid organization "Sea-Eye" to provide 125,000 euros for another ship. As the association based in Regensburg announced on Thursday, it was the archbishopric of Munich and Freising as well as Paderborn and the diocese of Trier.

The money will be used to finance the transfer of the Sea-Eye 4 to the Mediterranean in the spring. "The donations from the Catholic dioceses of Munich and Freising, Paderborn and Trier enable us to send the Sea-Eye 4 to the operational area immediately after the shipyard work," said the association's chairman, Gorden Isler. “Thanks to the tailwind of the Catholic dioceses, 'Sea-Eye' and 'United4Rescue' have the opportunity to use future donations for the shipyard and operational costs. We are very grateful."

Last year, with the support of the “United4Rescue” alliance, “Sea-Eye” bought a former supply ship that has since been converted to accommodate migrants in the Mediterranean. “United4Resue” is significantly supported by the Evangelical Church in Germany.

The largest migrant ship is ready to go in Germany
"The Sea-Eye 4 could then start its first mission in March or April, " it said at the time. Unlike the Alan Kurdi , which is also operated by "Sea-Eye" and is registered as a Hamburg ship, the Sea-Eye 4 will have Regensburg as its home port.

Another ship in Germany is currently being prepared for use in the Mediterranean . The Mare Jonio 2 is in a Bremen shipyard and should be ready for launch by April. The Norwegian ship had previously been used to transport floating platforms. It will have space for a thousand immigrants and will have drones, night vision devices and hot air balloons and will be operated by the organization “Mediterranea Saving Humans”. That would make it the largest migrant aid ship in the Mediterranean.
