Our organisation provides for the needs of the international seafaring community. Major issues faced by seafarers include: loneliness, depression, self-harm and suicide. We are dependent on donations, special appeals, events and benefactors
How will the funds be used?
Seafarers are mostly recruited from poorer countries on minimal wages. On arrival in Victorian ports The Mission to Seafarers (MtS) provides facilities and services that support their wellbeing. Their lives are isolated and conditions at sea are dangerous. Keeping seafarers in touch with their families and providing a safe place for rest, relaxation and counsel in times of distress and injustice contributes to sustainable shipping and works to reduce the likelihood of seafarer fatigue.Seafarers’ welfare works to ensure our oceans and coastlines are in safe hands.
To maintain our Port facilities, providing a home away from home for visiting seafarers.
