A crew of stranded Chinese sailors were the unlikely beneficiaries of IOM’s Micronesia last week after a Kiribati-flagged vessel – stranded on a reef off the capital Pohnpei – ran low on power and food.

The Ping Da 7 is a huge refrigerated fish carrier which has been stuck on the Kepikepin Parem reefs since December 11, carrying a large load of fuel, oil, ammonia coolant and lube oil. The government has declared an emergency as the vessel has recently begun to leak.

“When the department of Justice contacted us we got together with the national police force to get cooking equipment and food to the stranded crewmen,” said Ashley Carl, IOM’s Chief of Mission in Pohnpei. “This is consistent with our mission – we don’t just give advice on migration, we also work to assist any migrant in trouble, including stranded sailors.”
