Caring for Seafarers Around the World
Did you know that over 90% of goods are shipped by sea?
Seafarers of all ages and nationalities work an average of 80 hours a week (plus overtime) to bring us these necessary goods and as an international population, are often exploited. Work on board ships can be isolating, and seafarers are at a much higher risk for depression, divorce, and suicide.
With an average of 30 ships a month coming into the Port of Seattle, Mission to Seafarers serves those who work on board cargo, container ships, and bulk carriers by providing essential human services.
