VIDEO: Happy Seafarer Day!

This year’s June 25th marks the fourth international Day of the Seafarer, an official United Nations observance day. Day of the Seafarer celebrates the vital yet often hidden work done by seafarers to transport goods and commodities all around the globe.

As nicely put by IMO, Seafarers are the people without whom food, clothes, gifts, gadgets or even basic needs would not reach our doors.

This year, once again, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) is asking people everywhere to show their appreciation, through social media, for seafarers and their contribution to global prosperity.

At the heart of this year’s campaign is the simple sentence “Seafarers brought me….”. IMO is inviting everyone to complete the sentence with a word of their choice and post it on social media, adding the hashtag “#thankyouseafarers”. The missing word can be anything that came by sea: from the cars people drive, the food people eat, the clothes people wear, the gadgets they use or the furniture they sit on.

World Maritime News Staff joins the organizations and media worldwide in celebrating these brave people in their determination to keep the wheels of the world running.
