Together with the International Seafarers Welfare and Assistance Network (ISWAN), Hafnia hosted a wellness morning on the topics of mental health and social media, in Manila, The Philippines on the 18th of August 2023 in a closed morning session.
Attended by close to 50 participants formed of Hafnia seafarers, their spouses, and office staff, discussed topics included the work ISWAN is doing, a deep dive on mental health, the family perspective, situations on board, social media, and communication with loved ones.
During the Hafnia Wellness morning, team members also discussed Hafnia seafarers and spouse’ awareness of individual financial overviews in regard to contracts, wages, and insurance coverage.
The Hafnia Wellness morning was then followed by a Hafnia Social in the afternoon hosted at the Hospicio de San Jose, a welfare institution in the Philippines, taking care of vulnerable persons including children and the elderly. Through the children’s program, Hafnia and BW collaborated on San Jose’s education platform for children through its in-house learning program – on this particular day focusing on life in a shipping company and a career at sea.
The attending delegate represented by Captain Sergio Albayda, presented Hafnia, BW Philippines, and a career at sea as part of the program, followed by activities with the children, which included a donation drive and a musical session performed by the children.
Hafnia thanks our team at sea and their families for making the time to get together during this wellness session and team-building event. We also thank ISWAN for their close collaboration and the staff at Hospice de San Jose who provided all participants with a heartwarming experience that emphasized human connection and positive influence on vulnerable populations.
