HOW YOUR DONATION CAN HELP SEAFARERS
Did you know that 90% of everything we use, from food and medication to cars and electronics, reaches us via the sea.
We might not realise it, but we all depend on seafarers.
With your help, they have someone they can also rely on.
Your support for the Mission to Seafarers Victoria (MtSV) enables us to care for the shipping industry’s greatest asset: its people.
Being a seafarer is tough. Crews can spend months away working long hours with little respite or contact with home. On top of the daily pressures, the threat of piracy, shipwreck and abandonment are ever present for the men and women who serve us at sea.
Amid these challenges, MtSV has been a constant source of practical support and reassurance. Our staff and team of volunteers have been supporting the tens of thousands of unseen key workers who have helped to keep our economy afloat and transport the essentials we need to survive.
We rely on the generosity of our donors, sponsors, and benefactors; and the income derived from bar sales, venue hire and events at our Flinders St building in Melbourne’s Docklands, so that we can provide a duty of care that touches lives worldwide.
Thank you for your support.
