BIBLIA is a Christian non-profit organization that’s sees to the spiritual and overall well-being of seafarers that come into the port of Cape Town. We are situated at every Port in South Africa. Our priority of late has been to the help seafarers, mainly fisherman out of modern day slave- labor and in many cases human trafficking and creating an awareness hereof. Being a Christian organization, we do not impose our beliefs on any seafarer or any-one for that matter, rather our objective being to show love to all seafarers, to whom ever is in need, regardless of creed or race. To all seafarers we offer pastoral counseling as well as trauma counselling should a seafarer/s encounter trauma via piracy or injury on board. At Cape Town harbour together with the MTS (Mission to seafarers of the Anglican Church), ICMA (international Christian maritime association), ITF (international transport workers federation) and some cases IMO (international organization for migration) we strive to make all of our ports a safe home for all seafarers.
