Such collaboration is not new. Many seafarers' welfare charities find
their roots in North America as far as two centuries in the past. They
have been serving seafarers - together - for much of that time. They
banded together in a professional organization in 1932, now called
the North American Maritime Ministry Association, or NAMMA.
Here they find encouragement and a unified voice, and collaboration continues today. In exploring new and exciting partnerships,
seafarers' centers can bridge the gaps in seafarers' lives as global shipping changes from generation to generation. New technology, faster
turn-around times, containerization, and smaller crews all mean that
the methods of seafarers' welfare one or two generations ago may
not work as well today or tomorrow. While internal developments
within organizations help accommodate to these swift changes, some
of the best adaptations happens when partnerships are formed and
organizations find synergies in combination.
And maybe that new partner is you. Find out about your local
seafarers' welfare organization and see what you might have to bring
to the table. It's a great cause - one that benefits directly the men
and women to literally run our global economy, but also one that
you will undoubtedly find sublimely rewarding. ●
