Human Rights at Sea expands its global flagship ‘Missing Seafarers & Fishers Reporting Programme’

PRESS RELEASE

HUMAN RIGHTS AT SEA

28 April 2016. Human Rights at Sea expands global flagship programme to record and investigate cases of missing seafarers to now include missing fishers at sea.

MSRP_Logo_BoxThe updated and re-titled ‘Missing Seafarers & 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 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

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.

Funding

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.
