SDG 1: No poverty, SDG 3: Good health and well-being

Leur mission est simple et leur présence n’a qu’un seul but : « Nous sommes des secouristes et nous sauvons des vies. » Créée en septembre 2015, Proactiva Open Arms est une petite ONG basée à Barcelone. Sa première opération de sauvetage maritime a été d'aider des réfugiés syriens qui tentaient de rejoindre l’île de Lesbos, en Grèce. Grâce à des dons, l’organisation a pu étendre ses interventions humanitaires au large des côtes libyennes.

SDG 1: No poverty, SDG 3: Good health and well-being

Their mission is simple, their rationale concise: "We are lifeguards and we are saving lives." Started in September 2015, the small Barcelona-based NGO Proactiva Open Arms initially helped refugees "disembark safely" onto the island of Lesbos, Greece. This year, the organization, which depends entirely on donations, has expanded its humanitarian operation to patrolling the coast off Libya.

Su misión es simple, su lógica, concisa: “Somos salvavidas, y estamos salvando vidas.” Desde septiembre de 2015, la pequeña ONG de Barcelona Proactiva Open Arms inicialmente ayudó a los refugiados a “desembarcar de forma segura” en la isla de Lesbos, en Grecia. En 2017, la organización, que depende enteramente de las donaciones, ha ampliado su operación humanitaria hasta patrullar la costa frente a Libia.
