    SYDNEY pilots recently have personally each committed to donating $1 per day to the Mission to Seafarers Sydney to assist them in the work they do to assist with the well being of the international seafarers that come to the ports of Sydney.

    Our small contribution will assist the Mission to Seafarers Sydney to put fuel in the bus and pay the local road toll fees.

    I am encouraging all pilot services to consider undertaking a similar commitment to the local seafarers centre in their port and we will publish their contribution on the AMPI website. 
    Our challenge is to have all Australian ports or pilot services on the list of supporters.

    Please see the link on our home page for further information and details about what we have achieved to date! Many thanks to Captain Michael Kelly for championing the initiative.
