Connecting Seafarers to the World

We are excited to announce that we've received the units for the MiFi project funded by the ITF Seafarers Trust

The MiFi project will allow Port Chaplains and Ship Visitors across UK ports to provide WiFi access on ships by using the MiFi units.

The devices provide a strong and secure network that seafarers can access when their ship is visited while at a UK port by a chaplain or ship visitor from; Aberdeen Seafarers' Centre, Apostleship of the Sea, Fishermen's Mission, Liverpool Seafarers Centre, Mission to Seafarers, Queen Victoria Seamen's Rest, Sailors' Society and the Seamen's Christian Friend Society (SCFS).

The project launched on the 1st May 2019.

We'd like to thank the ITF Seafarers Trust for funding the units and we look forward to managing the project on their behalf.
