This fund remains closed to new applications while our team in the Philippines continues to process the high volume of applications we have already received. We understand this is very difficult time for many families and we apologise for the delay - we are working hard to reopen the fund as soon as possible.
Please be aware that submitting an application does not guarantee that the requested funds will be granted. We are unable to respond to follow-up enquiries or unsuccessful applications, but those whose applications have been approved will receive a message from ISWAN and information from ShipMoney on how to access the funds.
Please check back for the next update on Friday 24 July. In the meantime, seafarers with any concerns can contact our SeafarerHelp team at any time, 24 hours a day, using the contact details at www.seafarerhelp.org.
