Catrambone, Christopher and Regina

The Catrambones save refugee lives

In 2014, 3,419 refugees drowned in the Mediterranean – a tragedy that Christopher and Regina Catrambone weren't willing to just stand by and watch anymore. The US entrepreneur-couple bought a ship and put together a crew of sailors and medical practitioners, and since summer 2014 they have been combing the Mediterranean Sea, rescuing refugees in distress.
