Stichting C.A.S.C.O.

Since its’ establishment in 2003, C.A.S.C.O. has as goal to provide in Rotterdam assistance to seafarers of all nationalities and beliefs. Special attention goes to the crews of ships that are in the port for a longer period, for example due to an arrest. C.A.S.C.O. volunteers visit the sailors on board and the foundation provides, if necessary, material assistance. Volunteers also make hospital visits to mariners. And the foundation organizes -almost monthly- karaoke nights at club the Flying Angel in Schiedam; seafarers who wish to attend this evening are transported for free to Schiedam and back. To conclude the evening volunteers distribute winter clothing that was collected. Once a year there is a nice barbecue evening and a big Christmas party.
