Ship Master Collects Donations for a Piracy Survivor
By Joseph R. Fonseca
An Indian Master, Capt Sukhvinder Bhamra, was sailing onboard the MSC Vanessa when he received an email from Mr Abdul Gani Serang of the National Union of Seafarers of India (NUSI) on the hardships faced by Mr Aman Sharma, recently released from captivity as part of the MV Albedo crew.
The Master and his crew started to collect money amongst the crew members of the ship. When he signed off, Capt Bhamra called Mr Sharma and informed him that he will try to collect about INR100,000 (USD1,650) from his ship’s crew and will help him in the coming days. Mr Sharma has since received the first of this support: INR30,000 (USD500).
MPHRP would like to sincerely thank Captain Bhamra and his crew for their heartfelt and generous donations.
