War in Ukraine: Seafarers & Families

Ukraine Seafarers' Families Transportation Project


The ITF Seafarers’ Trust, ITF, MTWTU and V-Group are working together to support the families of Ukrainian seafarers wishing to leave Ukraine. Bus transport is provided from Odesa to Romania where a week’s worth of accommodation, meals and support with organising onward journeys is provided. The ITF contributed $200,000 to kickstart the initiative. MTWTU is managing registration of families, V-group are covering logistics outside of Ukraine. The initiative is open to all Ukrainian seafarers’ families regardless of union affiliation or employer.
