Over the past 2 weeks MtSS staff members were able to distribute gift packs to seafarers on board 20 vessels at anchorage in the Singapore Strait.
Adhering to strict safety measures, crews released lines from their vessels to bring up the gift packs, which were supplied by the Singapore Maritime Officers’ Union (SMOU).
MtSS chaplain, Toh Soon Kok, commented, “In such difficult times it has been a joy and a privilege to be able to deliver these gift packs ship-side to seafarers and to let them know they are constantly in our thoughts and prayers.”
Those involved from MtSS are all vaccinated and are on a 7 day RRT with an ART in between (i.e., a swab test every 3 to 4 days).
