Have you ever considered why the global economy would collapse without hard working seafarers?
Seafarers transport 90 per cent of the world’s raw materials, component parts, products, fuel and 40 percent of food which means that most, if not all, businesses depend on them.
Long working hours aren’t the only hardship faced; storms, piracy, loneliness, isolation, injury and little or no time off the ship add to the mental and physical strain.
There is no minimum wage for seafarers under maritime law and means that many seafarers can earn less than $1,000 per month.
Your business can show its gratitude through a thoughtful bespoke partnership with SCFS. This, in turn, will help us continue to connect with and provide the emotional, spiritual, physical and practical support that seafarers vitally need.
How Can My Business Help?
Not sure? Here’s a couple of suggestions:
- Through donating products, gifts or clothes that would improve the health and wellbeing of the seafarer.
- By sponsoring a package of ship visits by our Port Chaplains and Volunteer Ship Visitors.
Other important projects and sponsorship opportunities which currently require funding:
- Port Chaplains / Ship Visitors in key ports across the UK and Ireland.
- Bibles and Christian literature in various languages.
- SCFS Annual Conferences.
- Fundraising and supporter events.
In partnering with SCFS we can offer your:
- Business a way to fulfil its corporate social responsibility.
- Employees an opportunity to understand the maritime environment that seafarers work in by sharing their stories and how you can get involved to make a difference.
- Employee volunteering opportunities to support Port Chaplains / Ship Visitors.
