On average 25 fishing vessels are lost around the UK coast each year often with tragic loss of life and livelihoods. But that’s only part of the story – over 12,000 men and women work in what is the UK’s toughest and most dangerous peacetime occupation deep sea fishing. At sea, they face death and injury on a daily basis. On land, many face insecurity and debt. Life for the 50,000 retired fishermen and their dependents is no better, with inadequate pensions, scant savings and even more debt offering no respite from hardship once the fishing is over.
Your support and that of your sponsors will help the Fishermen’s Mission reach out to alleviate the poverty and despair in our fishing communities by providing emergency and welfare support to fishermen and their families 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

The HIV/AIDS epidemic sweeping through sub-Saharan Africa has left millions of children parentless, vulnerable and without a future or hope in a world that is becoming more and more selfish by the day. Realising the catastrophic future that faces these children I-CCO Zambia was set up in 1999 by a group of concerned local Christians to help educate and train as many of the 800,000 AIDS orphans in Zambia as possible. The charity, run by volunteers and several full-time workers, uses a holistic approach in order to meet every aspect of the orphans’ needs – social, economic and spiritual. I-CCO UK was established in 2000 to work in partnership with those already working in Zambia to support the work of the charity through prayer and finance.
