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.

I am one with the thousands of seafarers around the world that are stranded onboard ships longing to get home in appealing to member states to lift travel restrictions to us key workers.. We are not alone.. God is with us in this battle. IMO and ITF are with us as an instrument and as a shield to protect us from this crisis.
