    We do not even see them, the seafarers who work night and day to provide us with food, medicine and energy. Now many of them need to extend their work period away from their loved ones to make sure that shipping, which accounts for 80 percent of the world's freight, is operating normally. We give them a well deserved pat on the shoulder - and hope you join us! #saluteseafarers
