Christmas presents for seafarers

In the days before Christmas, the Seafarers Mission Eemshaven holds a tradition of sharing Christmas presents with Seafarers on ships and vessels in the harbour. The Christmas presents were packed by students of Noorderpoort Energy & Maritime school in Delfzijl. The present exists of a bag from Collé Rental and Sales packed with a shower gel, chocolate, a drink bottle provided by Wijnne & Barends, a hand towel, a card game, a pen provided by Vopak, Christmas sweets, a Christmas card from the Dutch Centre for Seafarers and a business card of the Seafarers Mission.

The Christmas presents were handed to the Seafarers by Sven Standhardt, pastor of the Seafarers Mission, who was also accompanied by students of Noorderpoort Energy & Maritime.

The Christmas gifts are always greatly appreciated by the Seafarers.

The Seafarers Mission would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
