Donating in South Africa

The port chaplains and volunteers of the Apostleship of the Sea care for seafarers and fishermen in South Africa's largest ports, including Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth, which thousands of seafarers visit each year.

We help them get in touch with their families and provide transport into town or to a seafarers' centre. We also support their faith by celebrating Mass on board and supplying faith resources.

We rely on donations to continue our vital work. The easiest way to make a donation in South Africa is by Electronic Fund Transfer. It is safe and minimises costs to you and to us. (Credit cards are discouraged as they are currently an expensive option). 

EFT contributions can be made to:
