CM Hammar, who for the past 160 years have been providing better solutions for safety at sea, have donated £1,500 to the International Maritime Rescue Federation (IMRF) Mixed Migrants Safety Project (new window) and to our Affiliate Member Sea-Watch, who are working to save lives in the Central Mediterranean.

Håkan Skutberg, Managing Director, CM Hammar says: "When our company wanted to make a Christmas Gift to the IMRF it seemed natural to choose a project and organisation that was working in the Central Mediterranean."
