Launch of Emergency Funding Campaign for Developing World Seafarers | in International Shipping News 07/04/2020 Monday saw the launch of a charity crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for developing world seafarers and their families that have been severely impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic.

Many are in lockdown with casual contracts and unable to work; others are facing difficulties due to lockdowns when they leave ships and are unable to return to their families with costs and little income coming in; and there are even some reports of seafarers being shunned on their return to their homes for fears of the virus.

Replacing crews is a complicated operation that involves flying a total of more than 100,000 sailors industrywide around the world every month to connect with ships at far-flung ports. The seafarers often replace crew members who have been at sea for months at a time, with occasional brief breaks on land while containers, iron ore, grains and other goods are loaded and unloaded.
