This usually happens when “flags of convenience” are used and there are no collective agreements and controls. This leads to unpaid and / or reduced social and pension contributions, so that there is no entitlement or only a reduced percentage is due. Which ultimately contributes to the fact that seafarers are penniless after their sea shipping. Through no fault of their own, the wives, family members and / or widows are also affected.
Because of these and similar sad incidents, it is urgently necessary to take the initiative! Words alone are no longer helpful here.
For these reasons, the “Nanoug Foundation” has set itself the goal of supporting seafarers and their families, as well as young people, Newcomers to the profession and students and advocating their interests.
