海上聖誕節–船員慰問活動綜述/An Overview of “Christmas Celebration at the Sea” Campaign
2022年12月4日至30日，香港國際海員服務中心組織開展了海上聖誕節-船員慰問活動，在OOCL、Anglo-Eastern、Pacific Basin、WAN HAI等航運公司船員管理部門的支持與協助下，共探訪22艘抵港商船，向近500名國際海員送上香港海事同行的關心並贈送了聖誕大禮包。
During the period of 4th to 30th December, 2022, Hong Kong International Seafarer Services Centre (HKISSC) launched the “Christmas Celebration at the Sea” Campaign. With the support and assistance provided by the crew department of various ship companies, such as Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL), Anglo-Eastern, Pacific Basin, and WAN HAI, HKISSC visited 22 merchant vessels arriving in Hong Kong. Christmas welfare packs were given as gifts to 500 crew members.
Many seafarers are still working hard onboard to ensure the stable operation of the global supply chain during the festive season, when most people are celebrating with their loved ones. In order to better serve seafarers and express gratitude and care for crew members, the campaign was launched by HKISSC last Christmas.
活動啟動階段，中心工作團隊分別探訪了“EVER CENTER”、“MAERSK SYDNEY”、“OOCL NEW ZEALAND”商船及“NORTH ISLAND”散貨船。
At the beginning of the campaign period, the team of HKISSC went to visit m.v. EVER CENTER, m.v. MAERSK SYDNEY, m.v. OOCL NEW ZEALAND, and the bulk carrier NORTH ISLAND.
活動集中開展階段，中心工作團隊先後探訪了WAN HAI旗下的14艘商船與Anglo-eastern旗下的“NYK FUSHIMI”、“NAVIGARE COLLECTOR”商船、OOCL的 “SAVANNAH”商船及TS KELANG等商船。

此次海員探訪系列活動受到航運公司、廣大海員的熱烈歡迎與好評。Anglo-Eastern公司船員部June CHOW 女士評價海員探訪慰問活動：“關心船上的海員生活是Anglo-Eastern公司文化的重要元素，很高興海員工會在這方面的投入，希望海員能夠得到更多的關懷”。Pacific Basin公司船員部Alison女士亦希望與海員工會開展更多合作，為船上的海員送上更多的福利與關懷！
The campaign was a great success as the campaign had gained acclaim among ship companies and seafarers. Ms. June Chow from the crew department of Anglo-Eastern commented, “Caring for the lives of seafarers on board plays an important role in our corporate culture. I am so pleased that Hong Kong seafarer unions have been devoting so much effort to this aspect. I hope that more care can be provided for seafarers.” Ms. Alison from the crew department of Pacific Basin is also looking forward to more collaboration with Hong Kong unions to provide welfare and care for seafarers onboard in the future.
