For many years Global Marine has given generously and taken part in charity work worldwide, supporting the communities in which we operate.
Currently the primary charity supported by the company is the Ninos Pag Asa Centre, based in Olongapo, Philippines. It is an orphanage for those who are not cared for nor looked after by any other agency. It is authorised and licensed to operate as a social work agency giving medical assistance, educational programmes, skills training and community based rehabilitation. The centre not only looks after those who are resident, but also educates and assists other children and adults in the local community.
Global Marine has been supporting the centre since Cable Retriever arrived in 1998. The Captain of the Cable Retriever, together with the Make a Difference Team (MAD), in the UK takes responsibility for supporting the orphanage and organises many activities to this end throughout the year.
In February, the orphanage sent over a request for help to repair their gates which had become damaged and were no longer secure, as well as to fill in a ditch that was a becoming a hazard to the children.
Global Marine provided the funds to get the work done and now the orphanage has a lovely new gate, keeping everyone safe and secure.
