The International Seafarers Welfare and Assistance Network (ISWAN) has launched its new promotional video. The video Lifeline made by Maritime Films UK, showcases the varied work and projects of ISWAN. 

Short interviews are held with ISWAN staff as they explain the operation of SeafarerHelp, the 24 hour helpline, the work on supporting seafarers affected by piracy and the projects dealing with the health and wellbeing of seafarers.

Roger Harris, Executive Director of ISWAN, said "We are delighted with the video that Maritime Films UK has produced for ISWAN. With the growing use of video it is important for ISWAN to use this channel to promote the work we do."

The 24 hour multilingual helpline, SeafarerHelp, runs every day of the year and is free for seafarers to call from anywhere in the world. ISWAN also runs an emergency welfare fund for seafarers in dire need, produces health information for seafarers and provides information on the location of seafarer centres.
