"I have not seen pictures of my newborn baby for 5 months as we are not allowed to download large picture files on our ship. It is so good to see her growing. I wish I was there but this is the next best thing. Thank you."
"There are very few places we can step down from our ship. On the route we are on from Saudi to East Asia... This is the first time I have stepped down from the ship in 6 months."

Whether caring for victims of piracy or providing a lifeline to those stranded in foreign ports, we are there for the globe’s 1.5 million merchant seafarers of all ranks, nationalities and beliefs. To find out how we help those facing shipwreck, abandonment, loneliness and danger, visit our  Mission to Seafarers is a registered NPO in the UAE, #150069.
