In exactly one week, IMO will be marking the Day of the Seafarer by issuing a strong call for governments to recognise seafarers as key workers.
The COVID-19 pandemic makes this day more important than ever. Seafarers are the unsung heroes of the global crisis, transporting the food and essential foods we all need. They also face tremendous challenges, with thousands of them still stranded onboard ships.
Join IMO's call for seafarers to be recognised as key workers, so they can continue to provide their essential services and return home at the end of their contracts.
