That usually happens when “flags of convenience” has been carried out, and there are missing collective agreements and missing controls, and thus it has led to non-paid and / or reduced social and pension contributions, among other things, so that no entitlement or only a reduced percentage is due. Which ultimately contributes to the fact that seafarers are penniless after their seafaring. Through no fault of your own, at the same time, of course, the wives, family members and / or widows are also involved.
These and similar incidents mean that one has to take initiative and not just watch and close one’s eyes.
For these reasons, the “Nanoug Foundation” has set itself the goal of supporting seafarers and their families, as well as young people, career changers and students and advocating their interests.
