The global COVID-19 pandemic has created an international crisis for the shipping industry this year and left hundreds of thousands stranded at sea or unable to join ships to work.

Under the hashtag #SeafarersDeliveringChristmas, the shipping industry has come together to develop a range of initiatives to help show our gratitude and thanks to all the seafarers who have continued to (literally) deliver so much, under such difficult circumstances, throughout this turbulent year. Find out more about the #SeafarersDeliveringChristmas campaign here.

400,000 seafarers across the globe are estimated to have been severely impacted by the pandemic

International travel restrictions have made crew changes incredibly difficult and in many cases impossible, meaning some seafarers have been on board for more than 17 months without a break.

ISWAN's helpline has taken over 17,000 calls and messages from seafarers and their families so far this year

SeafarerHelp, our free, 24-hour, international helpline, has experienced an unprecedented demand from those seeking help. Between the helpline and our staff in India, the Philippines and Nigeria, ISWAN has helped and supported over 36,000 seafarers and their families during this difficult year.

Many seafarers will spend this Christmas away from their loved ones

SeafarerHelp will be available 24/7 throughout the festive period for any seafarer or family member who needs us, but we need your help.

YOU can make a difference

It costs around £50 an hour to run our helpline so every donation counts. You can help us be there for seafarers and their families around the world by donating to this campaign, supported by Lloyd's Register.
