Regina Egle Liotta Catrambone

Co-founder, Migrant Offshore Aid Station

Regina Catrambone is an entrepreneur and co-founder of MOAS together with her husband Christopher Catrambone. Born and raised in Southern Italy, Regina moved to Malta in 2007 with her family. She is currently a member of the Board of Directors at their family company, Tangiers Group. After about 400 migrants drowned off the Italian island of Lampedusa in 2013, Regina and Christopher decided not to be bystanders. They purchased a boat, equipped a crew and founded MOAS, a search and rescue charity dedicated to saving lives at sea. Since 2014, MOAS has saved about 30,000 people from the Mediterranean. Regina and Christopher hope that their humanitarian initiative will inspire others globally, and help to dispel what Pope Francis called the “globalisation of indifference”.
