Regina Egle Liotta Catrambone

Born and raised in Southern Italy, Regina is the co-founder and director of the international NGO MOAS.

Inspired by the terrible shipwreck that took place off Lampedusa in 2013, Regina and her husband Christopher founded the Migrant Offshore Aid Station in 2014 to alleviate the unnecessary loss of lives at sea.

In September 2017, MOAS redeployed its assets in Southeast Asia to react to the unparalleled Rohingya exodus into Bangladesh and to provide sorely needed medical assistance to both Rohingya and local host communities.

Dedicated to mitigating the suffering of the world’s most vulnerable migrant and refugee communities, MOAS has assisted over 125,000 people since its inception.

Founding MOAS, the Catrambone family hoped that their humanitarian initiative would inspire others globally.

Regina strongly believes that entrepreneurs can play a relevant role in solving the current humanitarian crisis through innovation and creativity, with an eye on how to react in the most efficient way. The world needs courageous entrepreneurs who have both the resources and vision to face current challenges.
