About Us

Our Mission

To save and aid war refugees, asylum-seekers and migrants in distress, and raise public awareness about their situation 

Our Project

Saving Humans USA raises funds for the sole purpose of monitoring and rescuing people in danger in the Central Mediterranean 

Who we are

Saving Humans USA is the American sister non-profit of Mediterranea Saving Humans, the Italian association that monitors the waters of the Central Mediterranean to restore humanitarian activities needed to save the lives of war refugees, asylum seekers and migrants who are escaping from the Libyan war. Mediterranea bears great resemblance with the NGOs operating in the Mediterranean observing, documenting and informing the public of what is happening in those waters. At the same time, Mediterranea is different: it is a non-governmental project by made possible thanks to various organizations and individuals, and open to all voices from many different perspectives: secular and religious, social and cultural, union and political.

What we do

The action of Mediterranea is civil obedience and moral disobedience. Disobedience to the nationalist and xenophobic public discourse and to the interdiction of witnessing what is happening in the Mediterranean. We obey to the constitutional and international laws, the declaration of human rights and the law of the sea, which oblige to save those who are in danger and to bring them to the closest safe harbor. Mediterranea sails a ship flying the Italian flag, and is prepared to monitor, but also ready for rescue, knowing better than ever that saving one life in danger means saving all of us. The main goal is to be where we are needed, to witness and document what is happening, and if necessary, save whoever risks to die in the central Mediterranean.

Our network

Mediterranea is not only at sea, but as well on land, with a vast support network, of which Saving Humans USA is part. This is a real platform of social connections between associations and individuals who want to participate in this project. Anyone can join the project anytime, becoming a promoter of this humanitarian initiative or signing up to become part of our sea crew. Mediterranea has land crew teams in eighteen Italian towns and cities, and abroad - besides the United States - is present in the major European cities. Mediterranea has established valuable relationships with the NGOs that perform the Search and Rescue activity in the Mediterranean sea.
