About this fund

In response to the overwhelming number of seafarers needing assistance due to testing positive for COVID-19, ISWAN launched a grants programme in the Philippines funded by the Seafarers International Relief Fund (SIRF) and in partnership with The Seafarers' Charity. This project aimed to assist 100 Filipino seafarers by alleviating their costs of hospitalisation, medicines and supplements, and other financial troubles brought about by the virus.
