Japanese Shipping Lines, CFC ANCOP, et al Hold Med Mission for Yolanda Survivors
JX Shipping Co Ltd., a long-time employer of Filipino seafarers, conducted a medical mission to Yolanda-devastated areas in the Philippines last March 12 to 13. JX representatives visited the barangays of Maticas and Milagros in Ormoc City and Barangay Marcos in Baybay City in Leyte.

Two medical teams who attended to more than 1,000 patients were led by JX top executives Mr. Osamu Hasako, director senior vice president, and Capt. Takanori Nagao, deputy GM of Seamens Dept. The teams provided adult, pediatric, ophthalmologic, and other medical services, including free medicines and eyeglasses. The medical missions were successfully concluded with the help of CFC-ANCOP, P.C. Marquez Foundation, Inc., Manila Medical Center, and Volunteer Maritime Doctors. In appreciation, Hasako was presented a certificate of appreciation from the Office of the Mayor and City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council for the invaluable services rendered to the city of Leyte.

JX Japanese has been a major player in the Philippine manning industry and has been been recognized twice by the Philippine government through the Presidential Award as Pioneer Principal for Ship Manning by the POEA. It has provided jobs for the Filipino seafarers for over 41 years through its connections to Virjen Shipping Corporation and Grace Marine.  It is because of these deeply rooted business relations that the company has never hesitated to help the Philippines when the need arises.

In the past, JX Shipping also gave financial assistance to their officers and crew affected by the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that hit Bohol, Cebu, and other parts of Visayas. They also donated funds through the Philippines-Japan Manning Consultative Council to rebuild schools and community centers in Iloilo and Aklan, from where many Filipino seafarers hail.
