What are we doing?
The Mission to Seafarers has campaigned tirelessly for more media and public attention on piracy and maritime violence. Despite incidents of piracy falling year on year, hijacking at sea, kidnap and violence has increased.
We fully support the Maritime Piracy Humanitarian Response Programme (MPHRP), which was set up to track incidents and help those affected by piracy.
We also provide hands-on support for seafarers directly affected by piracy, with all our port chaplains trained in post-trauma stress care.
