HAMBURG. Owing to the temporary reduction in VAT from July to December 2020 and the membership fees already paid to the Maritime Cluster Northern Germany (MCN) at the beginning of 2020, a surplus has resulted. MCN members have therefore decided to donate the difference of €1,400 to the German Lutheran Seamen’s Mission Foundation. “This helps us to reliably support the work performed at the Seamen’s Mission stations even in times of crisis,” states Reinhart Kauffeld from the German Lutheran Seamen’s Mission Foundation.
