Can you imagine being separated from friends and family this festive season?

As we count down to Christmas with hearts full of excitement, looking forward to spending time with loved ones and unwrapping presents under the Christmas tree, the reality for most of the world’s 1.3 million seafarers is quite the opposite.

For the world’s 1.3 million seafarers, Christmas will be just another day at sea. Many miles from home, most will go without hearing from loved ones, or seeing the faces they hold dear. Instead of sharing in the peace, love and joy of the season, these men and women will be working around the clock, giving their all to bring us our supplies of luxury goods and basic essentials.

This Christmas, The Mission to Seafarers wants to ease isolation by bringing seasonal joy, friendship and hope to the thousands of seafarers at sea. Will you help us by buying a Mission Gift?

What are Mission Gifts?

You can make a difference to a seafarer’s life by choosing one or more of our ‘Mission Gifts’ as a virtual present for a seafarer. Each gift has been specially chosen to bring real help and comfort to seafarers in need. When you purchase a Mission Gift, you will be helping to fund our essential work to provide emotional, practical and spiritual support to seafarers in over 260 ports around the world.

So whatever Mission Gift you choose will make a huge difference to a seafarer who may be working long hours at sea during the festive season.
