In its efforts to assist local philanthropic causes, Frank Salt Real Estate has donated €5,000 to the Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS), dedicated to preventing loss of life at sea by providing assistance to migrants who find themselves in distress while crossing the Mediterranean Sea in unsafe vessels.
Douglas Salt, who presented the donation on behalf of Frank Salt Real Estate, said “Guided by the belief that every life has equal value, we, as a company, are delighted to support the efforts of MOAS, and we’re grateful for the important work they do year-round to help the less fortunate.”
Based in Malta, MOAS is a registered foundation. It is dedicated to preventing loss of life at sea by providing assistance to migrants who find themselves in distress while crossing the Mediterranean Sea in unsafe vessels.
Equipped with the 40-metre (130 ft) expedition vessel, the Phoenix, two Remote Piloted Aircrafts, two RHIBs (rigid-hulled inflatable boats), and a highly experienced team of rescuers and paramedics, MOAS is able to locate, monitor, and assist vessels in distress.
The project – financed by private individuals who believe strongly in mitigating disasters at sea – is led by Martin Xuereb, Malta’s former Chief of Defense, with a distinguished Board of Advisers.
Regina Catrambone, founder of MOAS, thanked Douglas Salt and appealed to other private companies and individuals to follow in the steps of Frank Salt Real Estate and make more resources available to MOAS.
