IMO Day of the Seafarer 2014

IMO will be celebrating the fourth anniversary of its global 'Day of the Seafarer' campaign on 25 June.

"Seafarers," says the IMO, "Are the people without whom food, clothes, gifts, gadgets or even basic needs would not reach our doors. We rely on them every day. Yet have you ever said thank you to a seafarer? Chances are you haven't."

25 June is the opportunity to do so.
