NSW Ports on a mission to support Seafarers

NSW Ports has donated $15,000 to Mission to Seafarers Sydney to support counselling, transport and services to mariners who help deliver essential goods to NSW each year.

NSW Ports Communications Manager Brooke Eggleton said the business was proud to continue its support for seafarers who perform an integral role in the supply chain on which we all rely. “NSW Ports is proud to support Sydney Mission to Seafarers and seafarers,” she said.

Diving into soul support of workers at sea

Stop for just a moment and think about what it would take to stop our world. One way would be if all the people who work at sea went on strike. Global supply chains are heavily reliant upon seafarers. National economies and the arrival of your latest international parcel require water ways to work.

Reverend Un Tay, Principal Chaplain with Mission to Seafarers in Sydney, recently told Ben McEachen on radio Hope Mornings what it takes to support those who work at sea and how community support makes such a significant difference to seafarers wellbeing.
