Håkan Skutberg, Managing Director, CM Hammar says: "When our company wanted to make a Christmas Gift to the IMRF it seemed natural to choose a project and organisation that was working in the Central Mediterranean."

Theresa Crossley, IMRF CEO says: "We are very grateful to CM Hammar for their donation to our Mixed Migrants Safety Project."
The IMRF is the non-governmental organisation bringing the world's maritime SAR organisations together to share knowledge and improve maritime SAR coordination and response so more people in distress on the world’s waters can be saved.
Sea-Watch was founded as a non-governmental organisation on 19 of May 2015, and has performed maritime SAR missions in the Mediterranean to fulfill their mission of saving lives. With their new ship, the Sea-Watch 2, they were able to assist the rescue of 20,000 people in 2016. For more information about Sea-Watch, visit their website: https://sea-watch.org/en/ (new window).
