Stuck in foreign lands without communication facilities, many are still waiting to find out whether they will have a family and a home to go back to.
Sailors’ Society chaplains are already on the ground helping to connect Filipino seafarers to their loved ones back at home.
Donate today to help Sailors’ Society provide vital contact between seafarers and their families.
Donate today so that none of them suffer the anguish of not knowing whether their loved ones made it out alive.
Donate today so we can help these people rebuild their lives.
