On 1st May Labour Day the world came together to salute our seafarers. Here is a glimpse of what happened:
[Captain Andre LeGoubin, MNM MA FNI]
I’m proud to be one of over a million seafarers working on approximately 60,000 vessels.
We’re carrying over 90 % of the world’s commercial trade.
Like many seafarers, I’m unable to go home, or at least can’t get in, so we just have to carry on.
[ICS Chair Esben Poulsson]
These seafarers are the unsung heroes of global trade and we stand by them during this difficult time.
We need governments to stand by them, too – and enable crew change!
A sincere thank you to everyone across the world for participating in #HeroesAtSeaShoutout.
