All at Tea - Charity lunch this Wednesday!
Every year, more than 10,000 ships with over 200,000 seafarers drop anchor off the coast of the United Arab Emirates. In the UAE, 99 percent of all the goods that are used are imported by ship, so life in the UAE is dependent on these seafarers. Without them, people and businesses would suffer.
Many of the seafarers onboard these ships do not get the opportunity to go ashore. Since the ships are up to 18 miles out, it is just too costly. As a result, it is common for them to go through long periods of isolation and loneliness, unable to communicate with family and friends at home.
“The Mission to Seafarers” is a charitable organization that is committed to supporting the seafarers around the world. It was founded in England in 1856 and has been operating in the gulf since 1962.
The organization launched “The Angel Appeal” to build and equip a boat to support the seafarers. It survives ONLY ON DONATIONS.
Join me on Wednesday afternoon for a charity lunch in support of The Angel Appeal http://solidariteaarabia.eventbrite.co.uk/
If you can’t make it in person, please donate whatever you can that will help make the seafarers lives better, clothes, books, electronics, etc
