 Migrants and refugees are assisted by members of the Spanish NGO Proactiva Open Arms as they crowd on board of a wooden boat sailing out of control at 20 miles (38 km) north of Sabratha, Libya on February 18, 2017 at Sea. 466 migrants have been rescued in high seas since yesterday evening by the Italian Coast Guard and the Spanish NGO Proactiva Open Arms rescue vessel Golfo Azzurro as they continue to search for more boats. Proactiva Open Arms are a Spanish charity based out of Malta who provide search and rescue assistance to refugees and migrants in distress at sea. They patrol the SAR and Rescue Zone off the coast of Libya running rescue missions for the hundreds of migrants who continue to make the perilous journey across the Mediterranean in the hope of reaching the European mainland.
