Send a message of support to the world’s seafarers - heroes of the pandemic let down by the world’s governments
This year the ITF will not be celebrating the International Day of the Seafarer. Governments are preventing more than 200,000 seafarers from stopping work, getting off ships and returning home – as is their fundamental human right. Add your message of support now.

If you are a seafarer needing help contact us.

We call our authorities in our countries to act under human grounds so we can start coordinating crew changes. A new task, 11 months as maximum time on board has showed us the darkest side of shipping resulting in inhuman periods on board, leave greed aside and start raising the standards of living of seafarers.

Talk minus action = Nothing. Enough is Enough! The Canadian inspectors team supports all seafarers coming to Canadian ports. Not just on Day of the Seafarer, but every day.
