HELPING SEAFARERS AND THEIR FAMILIES

Sailors’ Society is an international Christian charity working in ports across the world. Our chaplains help seafarers and their families, from all faiths and none, with welfare and practical support. We visit ships in ports and talk with seafarers away from home for up to a year at a time; we help them get in touch with much missed loved ones and access medical treatment; we liaise with frightened families when seafarers are kidnapped by terrorists or imprisoned, mostly through no fault of their own; and we build homes and schools and provide grants to bring hope and security to seafaring communities.

We cannot do this without your help. Why should you care? Almost everything we own or use comes by sea – our cars, our computers, our phones. We all rely on seafarers. Seafarers rely on us.

CHALLENGE YOURSELF

Seafarers face challenges every day. Violent storms, extreme loneliness and isolation and the threat of piracy and even hijacking by terrorists. Why not challenge yourself to help them?

SAILORS' SOCIETY AMBASSADOR TREK, HONG KONG, 28 OCTOBER 2017

Challenge yourself with a brand new 16.5 mile route starting at Big Wave Bay Beach, trekking Shek O road, Tai Tam reservoir and Tai Tam road before reaching the finish line at Repulse Bay.

PERSON IN EVERY PORT

It is our aim to have a volunteer in every port around the UK (to start with anyway!) Whether you could help fundraise, tell people in your church or community about our work or even get involved in visiting seafarers, we need you.
