The Cartagena Port Authority temporarily authorises care for migrants in the first 72 hours of their arrival, for humanitarian reasons.

THIS plan has been granted so that “the Government Delegation can coordinate the humanitarian work, developed by Salvamento Marítimo and the Red Cross, required to attend to the migrants who arrive on our shores in boats.”

The South West corner of the Escombreras Dam has already been fenced off by the Port Authority and the Delegation must complete the humanitarian work with a perimeter closure to avoid further possible leaks.


This authorisation has been announced to continue until August 31.
