• Popular actor & comedian asks public to donate to Proactiva Open Arms fund
• Appeal to purchase new emergency rescue boat for refugees stranded at sea
Spain’s popular comedian and actor Dani Rovira has joined the celebrity fundraising appeal to help Barcelona-based refugee assistance organization Proactiva Open Arms secure sufficient funds to purchase a new ship used in refugee rescue efforts in the eastern Mediterranean.
Rovira is perhaps most widely known for having co-starred alongside Clara Lago in the 2014 Spanish comedy film Ocho apellidos vascos (‘Eight Basque Surnames’, later released in English under the title “Spanish Affair”), which within six weeks of its original release became the second-highest grossing box office hit ever in Spain.
In the brief video appeal for Proactiva Open Arms, Rovira calls on the Spanish public to be generous in giving to the organization so that with a new emergency vessel it can continue its rescue operations to save refugees stranded at sea, who have fled their war-torn countries in the Middle East and Africa.
