"It is our privilege to be able to reunite our modern-day heroes with their families and loved ones by bringing them home," Dan Fernan, 2GO's head of shipping, said in a statement.
"With regards to the coordination with the LGUs, MARINA (Maritime Industry Authority) is the one coordinating with them directly about the seafarers going home," he added.
The company is working in close coordination with MARINA, the Philippine Coast Guard, as well as the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) Sub-Task Group on Repatriation of Overseas Filipino Workers chaired by the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and co-chaired by the Overseas Workers Welfare Association, to ensure the safety and well-being of the Filipino seafarers.
