Measuring the impact of our work is key to our fundraising endeavours. Donors want to know what their charitable support is going towards.
In 2017 we need to raise $600,000 to cover all of our core running costs including our seafarers drop-in-centre at Jurong Port and the daily ship visiting work carried out in Pasir Panjang Port. Our costs also include providing a free bus service to take seafarers out of port and give them the freedom to do day-to-day things we take for granted such as shopping. On average we take 160 seafarers a month from the port into the city and bring them safely back to their ships.
Singapore continues to expand as one of the world’s busiest trans-shipment hubs, with over 140,000 vessels using its ports annually. It is only with on-going support that we are able to continue and develop our much needed services to all seafarers.
Our ambition is to continue developing our robust welfare and facilities provision so that as many of the world’s 1.5m seafarers that we serve can benefit from our work.
