Pilipino consul pays the Mission a visit
The Philippine Consulate General in Melbourne Ms Maria Lourdes M. Salcedo visited the Mission to Seafarers Victoria (MtSV) for the first time last month to learn more about the organisation’s efforts in supporting seafarers’ welfare.
With more than 40 per cent of seafarers supported by the Mission annually hailing from the Philippines, MtSV CEO Sue Dight said the visit was all about raising awareness and estab- lishing stronger relations with the south-east Asian nation.
Joined by Deputy Consul General Anthony A.L. Mandap, the honorary Consulate General was given a tour of the heritage-listed Mission building and the organisation’s history, before being treated to afternoon tea •
