Imagine you are a seafarer who has been injured and left in hospital while your ship has sailed
Imagine you are a seafarer who has received bad news while at sea
Imagine you are a mother of seafarer who has been lost at sea
Who do you turn to?
ISWAN's SeafarerHelp is there for seafarers and their families 24 hours a day, 365 day per year. Our dedicated staff will be working over Christmas and New Year in case a seafarer calls with a problem or if they simply want to speak to someone in their own language. We refer cases to the most appropriate organisation, if possible, in the port where the seafarer is visiting or about to visit.
This year we have seen an increase of nearly 50% in the number of seafarers that contact us.
Although we receive funds from generous grant giving organisations, we still need to raise more money to keep our SeafarerHelp service running 24 hours every day of the year.
Can you give a donation of £15 or US$15 or more today? Better still, can you donate £5 or US$5 per month? We can accept donations by credit or paypal in different currencies. Simply click on the following link.
We are there for seafarers. Will you be there for us?
Have a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.
