United Rescue Aid is a humanitarian organization that is operated fully by volunteers. We work with crisis management and communication in order to help those seeking refuge in Europe from the war and poverty in their home countries. The Aegan and Mediterranian seas are dangerous to cross without proper equipment and the boats and life vests provided by smugglers are subpar and overcrowded. By maintaining contact with refugees and translators in the area we can track boats, triangulate communications with coast guards, rescue organizations and volunteers that can provide a helping hand when or if the worst happens. After the immediate danger is averted and the refugees are safely on peaceful territory we provide assistance in various areas in order to help as much as possible. We maintain connections with other aid organizations and help people get on the right track on their way to a safe and new life.

(Accepts volunteers under 21.)
