The main role of theICSW has been to promote the International Labour Organisation (ILO)conventions and recommendations concerned with the welfare ofseafarers, namely ILO convention 163 and recommendation 173. Thisrole is now much more pertinent with the impending ratification of theILO Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) 2006 that focuses on seafarers’welfare and wellbeing.The ICSW works to support welfare organisations that provide directwelfare services to seafarers. We work to enable the establishment ofwelfare facilities and services in ports and on ships. We work withcompanies, unions, governments, welfare organisations (secular andfaith based), and ports for the benefit of seafarers’ welfare.The leading members of the organisation include the InternationalShipping Federation (ISF), International Transport Workers Federation(ITF), and the International Christian Maritime Association (ICMA). TheILO is an observer organisation on our board of trustees. Otherorganisations such as National Seafarer Welfare Boards, Governmentseafarer services, shipping companies, and individual welfareorganisations are also members. 1  HOW TO USE THIS GUIDE Time ashore is precious for seafarers so we have produced this guide togive you the basic information about where you can find facilities andassistance that are available to you as a seafarer. Please find informationabout where you can contact the seafarer centre or welfare worker in eachport. We include the contact details, opening times, and facilitiesavailable. Telephone numbers are printed with the country code included. As you know, there are many places in the world who call themselves‘Seaman’s Club’ that are commercial businesses. These are not listed inthe directory as we only include centres that are members of theInternational Committee on Seafarers’ Welfare (ICSW), the InternationalChristian Maritime Association (ICMA) or a bona-fide welfare centre whooperates for the welfare of seafarers. We have included as many places as possible. The details were checkedlate 2011 / early 2012. We may have missed some ports and centres thatseafarers know about. We apologise for any omissions. Please reportthese omissions to us and we will include them in future editions. If youfind details that are not correct or wish to comment or add to the list offacilities in the guide then please email us at seafarersdirectory@icsw.org.uk The guide is also available online at www.seafarerswelfare.org 2
