Seamen’s Mission – Port Hedland
We had the good fortune to go out on the “Seamen’s Mission” launch for a tour of the harbour. Thoroughly recommend this wonderful experience.
The Mission has a launch that it uses to take crew members off the boats who would like to go to shore for 3 hours. The sailors are offered money changing facilities, shopping or help with personal matters. Most are Asian,so an interpreter is a useful member of the staff. Most staff of the mission are volunteers. It is run by the Anglican Church and is self funded by donations and the Harbour tours.
The captains and crew are very appreciative of the Mission’s services. In all a great afternoon
