CSC organises Blood Donation Drive for International Day of the Seafarer

On 25 June the International Shipping Community celebrates annually the “Day of the Seafarer”, which was set by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) in 2011. The “Day of the Seafarer” recognises and honours the efforts of Seafarers around the world, who play a vital role in world trade and truly contribute in ensuring a stable world economy and society. For 2022, the campaign of the Day of the Seafarers, with the theme “Your voyage - then and now, share your journey”, look at seafarer voyages, what it includes and how has it evolved over time and what remains at the heart of seafarers’ reality.

In view of this Day, the Cyprus Shipping Chamber held on 24 June, its annual Blood Donation Drive amongst the personnel of its Member-Companies, at Agios Georgios Havouzas Church Hall, in Limassol, under the auspices of the Shipping Deputy Minister to the President, Mr. Vassilios Demetriades, in recognition of the immense contribution of Seafarers.

The Chamber honours this special day by continuing its important social contribution to Cyprus society, as done in decades now, dedicating this Blood Donation Drive to the hardworking Seafarers for their invaluable work to our Industry and to the prosperity of cournties across the globe.
