Fundraising campaign "Weihnachten am Ohr 2019"wao 2 2017

They were happy - many hundreds of sailors. They expected our visits in the days before Christmas. It is quite normal for seamen to be visited by someone from a seafaring mission. Nevertheless, we were able to surprise them: with a gift. A greeting from shore on board: a prepaid sim card that allows you to use the internet and make phone calls. As on land, messenger services are being used more and more. This is how sailor families hear and see each other at Christmas.

We thank all the many donors who made it possible for us to give away 400 sim cards. In total, the Amsterdam station distributed 580 gifts.



Annual Holidays 201221 06 02

"We are away" - our employees have already planned their most beautiful weeks of the year. The seafarers in the harbor will miss our visits on board for three weeks and our house does not accommodate any guests. We let ourselves spoil somewhere else - but respond to mails.

From 03.08.2020 to 31.08.2020 the guesthouse is closed..

Afterwards we welcome our guests with fresh energy again.

This is what Santa Claus is doing through the summer!21 06 11

The question of Santa Claus in the summer always concerned some people. Answers were available - they fill books.

We bring sailors to Christmas gifts and are therefore their "Santa Claus". And to us, every year at the beautiful summer time, the question arises: What will we do this year as a gift for seafarers who are Christmas on sea? They can not use phone cards there - so we need something different. We ask colleagues - look what others have done in previous years. Browse in catalogs. It is not easy to start planning christmas things with a summer cocktail. And quite honestly, the right thing has not crossed our mind yet. Do you have an idea?
