Between 4 and 6 December 2022, the MSF team conducted three rescues in international waters near Libya. On 7 December, two medical evacuations were organised by the Geo Barents team: one for the pregnant woman to Malta by helicopter, the other for Fatima*, her newborn baby Ali* and her three other sons to Lampedusa. Another medical evacuation for a 14-year-old boy with severe abdominal pain was organized on 9 December. The remaining 248 survivors - including 81 minors - were waiting for a place of safety to disembark. A total of four requests were sent to responsible authorities of Italy and Malta and a positive answer came on 9 December 2022. Mediterranean Sea. © Candida Lobes/MSF © Candida Lobes/MSF

If you’re looking for exciting plans for this summer, we have a fantastic suggestion for you. How about immersing yourself in the vibrant world of multidisciplinary art and music festivals?

We will be participating in some summer festivals that showcase diverse cultures, celebrate art and the power of music and highlight the significance of humanitarian work. We would be delighted to have you join us. Our dedicated team members will be there to share their experiences, answer your questions and provide a deeper understanding of MSF’s medical humanitarian work with people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters or exclusion from healthcare.  

Mark your calendars for the upcoming festivals where MSF will be present. Be sure to bring your family and friends along for an experience that connects us all through the power of the arts.
