About Civic Values - Doctors without Borders

This stamp includes an illustration inspired by watercolors by designer Montse Lapuyade, a regular MSF collaborator. It is an adaptation of a photo that Anthony Jean took on February 23, 2020, during the 7th rotation of the Ocean Viking ship, with which the MSF and SOS Mediterranée organizations carried out search and rescue operations for migrants in the Central Mediterranean. The image captures the moment of relief/excitement/happiness when the survivors, workers and workers on board are told that they have been assigned a safe port: the ship is on its way to Pozzallo (Italy). These people have left the nightmare of Libya behind, but for many others, jumping into the Mediterranean Sea remains the only option to survive.
