Seamen’s Home

Regardless of origin, colour of skin and religion, for the time they are away in strange lands, the seamen are to feel at home in the Seamen’s Home. Most seamen nowadays hail from the Philippines, from China, India or from eastern Europe.

On the average each year, 5000 lodgings for the night have been provided for seamen and their families in the Seamen’s Home. Is there a change of crew on board to take place, the shipping companies book a room for the seamen, have they to wait for the ship to come or waiting for the flight to go home.

To mention still, some older seafarers have found a fixed place here as their home since years ago.
