In a recent update, The Danish Seamen’s Church in Hong Kong shares the delivery of two phones to the crew members on board the great ship Charlotte Maersk.
The church is first and foremost a sailors’ church, and its primary purpose is to visit all the Danish-flagged ships that dock in Hong Kong and help or assist where they can. The Danish Seamen’s Church supports all crew regardless of nationality onboard Danish flagged ships. But because many ships today have internet access and with that, access to news, newspapers are somewhat redundant.
Back in late April, the Danish Seamen’s Church in Hong Kong delivered a wide range of goods to crew members on board Savannah Maersk when the ship docked in Hong Kong but since then, only 2 Danish-flagged ships have passed by and they did not need anything.
June has seen 6 Danish-flagged ships dock in Hong Kong, but only Charlotte Maersk has so far needed the Danish Seamen’s Church.
