Severe storms have battered the UK. NASA

Seafarers’ charity Apostleship of the Sea (AoS) has been providing support to crew struggling to keep shipping going despite the recent severe storms in the U.K.

In Falmouth two seafarers injured as a result of severe storms are being cared for by Apostleship of the Sea (AoS) and other local charities.

A Thai seafarer was airlifted off a bulk carrier passing Falmouth on Saturday and a Filipino seafarer was taken off a vessel in Falmouth for bunkering on Sunday by an inshore lifeboat. Both are being treated in Tresliske Hospital, Truro.

Falmouth port chaplain, John Pinhay, has been supporting both seafarers.

In Tilbury, AoS port chaplain, Wojiech Holub, expressed his concern for the crew of the cruise ship Marco Polo following the death of an 85-year-old male passenger who died after waves crashed through a window of the cruise ship as it headed for its home port of Tilbury in Essex. According to media reports, the male passenger and a woman in her 70s were airlifted off the ship but he later died in hospital. Wojiech knows this crew well from his visits when they are in their home port and knows the additional stresses this will have given them.
