The seafarers of Veracruz thanks to all

th Day of the Seafarer”

We are sending this information to the

ISWAN International Seafarers’ Welfare and

Assistance Network asking respectfully to

send this information to IMO International

Maritime Organization and wishes that all

the Mexican Ports celebrate this day on the

next years.

In 2010, the Diplomatic Conference which

met in Manila to adopt milestone revisions

to the International Convention on

Standards of Training, Certification and

Watchkeeping for Seafarers (the STCW

Convention) and its associated Code, also

agreed that the unique contribution made

by seafarers from all over the world to

international seaborne trade, the world

economy and civil society as a whole,

should be marked annually with a ‘Day of

the Seafarer’. The date chosen was 25 June,

the day on which the amendments were

formally adopted.

The campaign objectives are:

• To increase awareness among the general

public of the indispensable services you

render to international seaborne trade, the

world economy and society at large;

• To send a clear message to you that we

recognize and appreciate your services; that

we understand the extraordinary conditions

and circumstances of your profession; that

we do care about you; and that we do all

that we can to look after and protect you

when the circumstances of your life at sea

so warrant; and

• To redouble our efforts at the regulatory

level to create a better, safer and more

secure world in which you can operate.

magazines and the Resolution 19 of

International Seafarers’ Welfare Centre last

year on June 25

th but there were many

people so Mons. Luis Felipe Gallardo Martín

del Campo, Bishop of Veracruz suggested to

have a mass at the church “Stella Maris” so

we have an small chapel at the Centre and

many seafarers and their families couldn’t

attend mass, so he offered to stay with us

more comfortable. That was the reason to

appoint Mr. Emiliano Antonio Novelo

Alpuche as the Festival Presidency to

organize this huge and monumental

significance festival.
