The UAE Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure honoured Andy Bowerman, Regional Director for Middle East & South Asia, Mission to Seafarers, as part of the ‘Supporting our Blue Army’ project.
This was in honour of his efforts and accomplishments in assisting seafarers and following up on their requirements throughout his time in the United Arab Emirates, which is coming to an end.
Hessa Al Malek, Minister of Energy and Infrastructure’s Advisor for Maritime Transport Affairs, praised the efforts of Mission to Seafarers, a non-profit organisation that provides emergency help and practical support to ship crews.
She appreciated Bowerman’s work in terms of caring for and supporting seafarers, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Al Malek said, “Taking care of our seafarers working onboard ships is one of the primary responsibilities of the maritime transport industry. The UAE has always been one of the pioneering countries in ensuring the welfare of the seafarers’ community.”
