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.

Thank you for updating regarding the seafarers' welfare.

Thank you for all that you do and I am so sorry you have not been treated better throughout this pandemic. The governments preventing you from returning home are shameful and wrong.
