Seafarers acknowledged

The Day of the Seafarer, an annual campaign recognised by the United Nations, was celebrated on 25th June. To mark the occasion, China Navigation organised a photography competition for its seafarers in June. This image taken by Yang Runkai on MV Wuchang won both First Prize and the ‘People’s Choice’ Award. On the day itself CNCo’s seafarers across the globe, as well as onshore staff, marked the event by connecting for a virtual Townhall meeting. An amount of US$3,446 was also raised for the Mission to Seafarers, which provides support to the international seafaring community from over 200 centres worldwide.

Now in its tenth year, the Day of the Seafarer pays tribute to seafarers and acknowledges their contribution to international trade, as well as the sacrifices they make and the issues they face. This has been especially important during the coronavirus pandemic, when ships’ crews have played a frontline role in the delivery of vital goods; globally, many seafarers have now been away from home for months and are unsure when they will be able to return, due to travel restrictions.
