ISWAN: Day of the Seafarer 2016
The UK Club recently sponsored the Health and Well-being Zone at IMO's Day of the Seafarer held in Manila on 25th June 2016.
The purpose of the event was to celebrate the great contribution made by seafarers. The event was a great success, and was attended by over 2500 seafarers.
Over 1500 seafarers visited the Health and Well-being zone for medical advice and support. The Club was also pleased that 20 of our PEME clinics provided doctors and nurses for the event in order to offer medical checkups for seafarers throughout the day.
