Human Rights at Sea expands global flagship programme to record and investigate cases of missing seafarers to include missing fishers at sea
The updated and re-titled ‘Missing Seafarers and Fishers Reporting Programme’ is a reflection of the increasing scope of the Human Rights at Sea charity’s flagship programme established in January 2014 originally focused on identifying missing seafarers.
CEO, David Hammond, said: “Due to the number of cases being submitted to the international database and which include cases of fishers lost at sea, the charity has decided to positively respond to this trend and adapt the programme accordingly.”
The three web addresses which all point to the updated site www.missingseafarers.org | www.missingmariners.org | www.missingseamen.org remain the primary addresses to access the site, while all other case submission features remain the same. Further updates will follow.
The Programme’s Mission is to support seafarers, fishers and their families by the registration, tracking, investigation and advocacy on behalf of those missing at sea through a secure mobile on-line platform. That platform is known as the Missing Seafarer & Fisher Register. The Aim of the Programme, through the use of the Missing Seafarer & Fisher Register, is to build an accurate international database detailing the status of seafarers and fishers missing at sea on a global basis. The Vision is to become the focal international database for recording missing seafarers and fishers.
The programme is entirely self-funded and dependent on donors and sponsors. Would you like to support our efforts to bring transparency, clarity and accountability to an issue that devastates families? Please donate via Just Giving links or contact us directly.
