2021 was a year of turmoil, challenge and poor mental health for seafarers and ﬁshers. Covid-19 restrictions continued around the world, dramatically impacting the oceans’ frontline workers, and adding a layer of complexity to every port visit. But your support helped us to serve the people of the sea throughout the storm.
Thank you for joining us for an online update and thank you webinar on Tuesday 28th June from 7:30pm to 9:00pm where we spoke about the impact of your generosity on the lives of seafarers, fishers, and their families over the last year or so.
