MARITIME risk agency RightShip has announced its support for The Mission to Seafarers with a donation of US$25,000.
CEO Martin Crawford-Brunt said RightShip’s values of promoting a safer industry aligned with the Mission’s goals and this partnership would help in achieving industry-wide improvements for seafarers.
“RightShip’s mission has always been to improve safety across the entire industry and we recognise that seafarers underpin the entire global supply chain,” Mr Crawford-Brunt said.
During this unprecedented time, seafarers need industry-wide support more than ever. If we are unable to provide seafarers with the adequate rest at home with their families and look after their mental health, we may see an increase in the number of safety incidents. Happy and rested crews run safer vessels.
“We are extremely pleased to be able to support The Mission to Seafarers in providing assistance to seafarers where it is needed most. Our donation is unrestricted to ensure the Mission has the funding available to continue to provide their support where it is most needed during this critical time.”
The Reverend Canon Andrew Wright, Secretary General for The Mission to Seafarers, sad during the past few months, seafarers had required support in all areas of their lives.
“Now is the time for the industry to address a range of very important priorities and this support from RightShip has come at a vital time for us,” Reverend Wright said.
“RightShip and the Mission both share a huge appreciation for the work that our seafarers do and this unrestricted donation will benefit those who need it most and help us protect the industry’s international essential workers.”
