Emergency Interventions

boat2We field emergency calls from Eritrean refugees and asylum seekers around the world who are in prison, or running for their lives from Eritrean agents, or faced with threats of refoulement (deportation) to Eritrea.  We then seek to connect those individuals with overseas organizations who may be in the position to assist or protect them.  We believe that we have helped to save many lives this way:  in Libya, Sudan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Djibouti, Yemen, Albania, Ukraine, Romania, Uganda, Vietnam, Greece and Cambodia.  Among other notable successes, in often protracted and dramatic circumstances, we have helped rescue pregnant refugees, defecting Eritrean aircraft pilots, defecting Eritrean sports teams, and government officials.
