Int’l Day of Seafarer being observed today

ISLAMABAD-The Day of the Seafarer is being observed across the globe on Thursday (June 25, 2020).

This year, the Day of the Seafarer campaign calls on sates to recognize seafarers as key workers and to provide them with the support, assistance and travel options open to all key workers during the pandemic.

Seafarers are on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic, playing an essential role in maintaining the flow of vital goods, such as food, medicines and medical supplies.

The campaign seeks to raise awareness of the work achieved by seafarers in response to the pandemic and to thank them for their contribution. The campaign also encourages everyone to treat seafarers with the respect and dignity they deserve so that they can continue to provide their vital services to keep world trade moving.
