Our Communities: Supporting Seafarers Worldwide

Image

We believe in doing right by our communities and investing in worthy causes. We support charities and community organisations as well as our employees in need. Our support for the communities focuses on Education, Community, Health, Youths, Environment and Biodiversity. We are committed to establishing long term, mutually rewarding relationships with our partners and our communities.

Supporting Seafarers Worldwide

We support The Mission to Seafarers and The Sailors’ Society, caring for and supporting seafarers of all races, religions or ranks around the world. In 2015, three CNCo employees took part in The Sailors’ Society Mt. Kinabalu fund-raising challenge. CNCo matched their funds raised dollar-for-dollar.

CNCo also partnered The Mission to Seafarers (MtS) to produce a “Seafarers’ Guide to Understanding Diabetes”. This was distributed to all our ships and made freely available to all other companies associated with the MtS.

CNCo supports the ASSM Dependent’s Association (ASSMDA), an independent, not-for-profit association in the Philippines formed by the partners and relatives of our Filipino seafarers.

ASSMDA provides voluntary assistance to the seafarers’ families in times of need and aims to improve their livelihoods through organising value-added social activities such as making candles, dishwashing liquids, fabric conditioners and bracelets. ASSMDA can mobilise very quickly to assist with relief work as a result of natural disasters, eg during Typhoon Haiyan/ Yolanda.
