Saving Refugees on the Mediterranean: a Luxury Yacht With a New Purpose

Oscar camps a Spaniard started a nongovernmental aid group called Proactiva. Proactiva helps drowning refuges and migrants. His aid group recently acquired a luxury yacht  that has now saved around 15,000 refuges and migrants and 6,000 people in a single day last summer.  He started this aid group when he realized Europe's inaction was deliberate. Europe was using the sea as way to send a message to refuges to not come or else they will drown. Camps also says that Europe is lying about the number of dead. Europe only counts  the number of bodies found, not the ones lost or drowned at sea.
