The ITF Seafarers’ Trust, the charity arm of the International Transport Workers” Federation, has authorized two grants totalling GBP100,000 to aid Filipino seafarers and their families affected by Typhoon Haiyan.

The grants, for GBP50,000 each are being awarded to the Associated Marine Officers’ and Seamen’s Union of the Philippines (AMOSUP) and the Philippine Seafarers Union (PSU) to help them deliver emergency relief for seafarers and their families.

ITF Seafarers’ Trust chair Dave Heindel commented: “Around 300,000 of the world’s seafarers are from the Philippines, many of them from the worst hit areas. These two grants will allow us to provide targeted help to them.

“The Seafarers’ Trust is trying to alleviate at least some of the awful effects of the tragedy that hit the Philippines, a country which is fundamental to the maritime world. With this aid the Trust is hoping to help many seafarers to get back on their feet, and to support  them at this difficult time.”
