Donation to Seemannsmission Hamburg-Altona
Seafaring is an extreme place of work, characterised by the globalised consumption of goods, in which ships are getting bigger and the people working in this sector are becoming more and more inconspicuous.
During Christmas time, the season of love and contemplation, when many of us enjoy the end the year with their loved ones, many seamen cannot be with their families. The Seemannsmission Hamburg-Altona e.V. is a non-profit association dedicated to providing these seamen with dignified accommodation all year round and to being a 24-hour point of call in difficult situations, to supporting them with friendliness and helpfulness and to giving them a little recognition. In addition to public grants, it is dependent on voluntary commitment and donations.
We highly appreciate the work of the association and in order to reward it, we have decided to support it with a donation at Christmas this year. In the course of our donation hand-over we visited the premises located at Große Elbstraße 132 in Hamburg and could hence even get a closer insight into the association work.
