Giving back to local community
To give back to local communities where we operate in.
We will continue our efforts to support human rights and help the local economy's growth. Our biggest reward is realizing that we have made a significant positive change in someone's life.
Our Efforts and Programmes
|The art of giving back is known as philanthropy. We believe charity begins at home and for us, it is where we operate in.
We actively work on initiatives to give back to our local community. This is especially so in the seafaring community that is the backbone of the shipping industry.
