'Thank you' is sometimes merely a way to be polite. It used in all languages and cultures every day. But very important – this “thank you” message is not just to be polite. We have had many challenges this year, yet, thanking you is still at the top of our list.

The message today from all of us to you is this: Thank you so much for the support over the past year. Whether it was donations, beanies, scarves or blessed bags it does not matter. We could reach out to many seafarers. For that we are grateful to the Lord and also to you our donor.

This word of thanks comes from everybody that works at CSO!

May you have a blessed Christmas. And stay safe!
