Yesterday was the celebration of Ash Wednesday. This day marks the first day of Lent, which is an important time set aside for spiritual reflection often involves a shared commitment to change during the period of 40 days before Easter. Many thanks to our supporters all around the world who have dedicated their Lent to helping to improve the lives of seafarers and their families.

Support and welfare for the world's 1.5 million merchant seafarers
Introduction
There for seafarers in 260 ports worldwide

Piracy, shipwreck, abandonment and separation from loved ones are just a few of the problems merchant seafarers face. Around the world, The Mission to Seafarers provides help and support to the 1.5 million men and women who face danger every day to keep our global economy afloat.

We work in 260 ports caring for seafarers of all ranks, nationalities and beliefs. Through our global network of chaplains, staff and volunteers we offer practical, emotional and spiritual support to seafarers through ship visits, drop-in centres and a range of welfare and emergency support services.
