Amver Ship Rescued 41 Migrants in the Mediterranean

The M/V Eastern Confidence seen under it's previous name Sat Nunki
The 41 migrants rescued from a boat that capsized in the Mediterranean were saved by the Amver participating bulk carrier Eastern Confidence on April 16, 2016.

The Filipino flagged ship was alerted to the distress by the Greek Coast Guard and steamed to the distress location. The BBC reported the migrants were on a voyage from Libya to Europe when they were transferred from one boat to another more overcrowded boat. At some point the wooden boat capsized killing at least 500 people.

The 554-foot cargo ship embarked the survivors, mostly from Africa, and disembarked them in Greece. The BBC, citing the ship's log, reported the migrants initially refused to leave the cargo ship but eventually left and were met by Greek officials.

The Eastern Confidence, managed by Hellas Marine Services of Greece, enrolled in Amver on May 26, 2009 and has earned one Amver participation award.
