IN THE COMMUNITY

In February, Swire Pacific Offshore ("SPO") and The China Navigation Company ("CNCo") celebrated the ground-breaking ceremonies of two health centres in Tacloban and Bantayan Island in the Philippines. The health centres were built with a donation of 1.5 million pesos organised by Anscor Swire Ship Management Dependents Association ("ASSMDA"), a Philippines-based, non-profit organisation founded in 2007 and sponsored by SPO and CNCo. Following 2013's catastrophic Typhoon Haiyan, which took the lives of more than 6,000 people and caused many more to be homeless, healthcare facilities remain limited and local villagers have to travel for many hours to seek medical help; on completion at the end of the year, the new facilities will provide them with accessible medical support. In the long term, ASSMDA hopes to use these centres as local bases to reach out to more villagers and help equip their families with new skills to improve their livelihoods.
