Seafarers serve at sea not just for the shipping industry or for their own career purposes but for all of us.

Day of the seafarer is an official United Nations international observance day which takes place every year on 25 June. It is organized by the International Maritime Organization and aims to increase awareness among the general public of the world’s 1.5 million seafarers for their unique, and all-too-often overlooked, contribution they make to the well-being of all of us.
