Support of Seafarer’s Dignity!

Isolation from friends and family, harsh work conditions, tensions between crew members, shipwreck, piracy – going to sea can cause a lot of hardship. Being the German Seaman’s Mission Hamburg-Altona, we are dedicated to support seafarers of all ranks, nationalities and beliefs and help them to overcome those hardships.
Offering decent shelter is ,of course, our main objective. But we have far more than that to offer! We organize transport off and to the ships, we provide means of communication (phonecards, internet), counseling, we do ship-visiting and offer spiritual support. If there is something seafarers are in need of, we are sure we can be of assistance!
