Richard Gere, the actor is seen carrying boxes full of fruit for the rescued migrants this Friday on a helpful ship that has been stranded in the Mediterranean Sea for over a week.
Gere managed to bring food and other essential supplies for all of the 121 people on board the ship named Open Arms, a salvage ship drifting in worldwide waters close to the Italian island of Lampedusa after being denied entry to ports in Italy and Malta. Those countries need individual European Union nations to take in a greater amount of the vagrants who run over the ocean.
Richard dressed a few transients who had fled war-torn Libya on unseaworthy sneaking vessels before being safeguarded, among them a man and his infant. A dad of two, Gere shared photographs of his most youthful child, who was conceived in February.
Gere has a long history of human rights activism and regularly crusades for natural issues and AIDS investigate. He has been restricted from China for support for human rights in Tibet.
He happened to be in Italy this week and after seeing news about the vessel’s situation, reached the Spanish philanthropy Open Arms and asked how he could be of any help, as said by a representative for the gathering.
