PANDIMAN are delighted to announce the appointment of Erica D. Amazan, a Registered Nurse, and Whey Anne O. Siscar as our CSR and Business Ethics Representatives. Erica and Whey have already visited 393 admitted patients at our accredited hospitals as well as numerous out-patient seafarers as part of Pandiman's continued effort to support Shipowners in the Philippines.

PANDIMAN and its affiliates are committed to providing education opportunities for underprivileged students from families who lack the finances to further their children’s education. We have today enrolled and paid for the following three night high school graduates/scholars from Siena College in Taytay, Rizal to be given the opportunity of a College Education for the coming four years.

As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility, Pandiman would like to lead the way in directing our Organization in advocating and aiming to assist members of our community who find it hard to advocate for themselves.



To help the survivors restore their livelihood, Pandiman Philippines Inc. and its sister company Survey Specialists, Inc., have donated two (2) motorized fishing boats with outriggers through a non-government organization, Negrense Volunteers for Change Foundation, Inc. for the fishermen of Northern Panay and Negros Occidental who lost their boats to typhoon Yolanda. Pandiman will also support the project of adopt-a-school in Eastern Visayas.




Pandiman commend the people from One World School for pursuing the vision of creating the kind of school which recognizes the potential of Children of All Abilities and applaud their efforts in seeing this vision through to the reality that is One World School. There is a dearth of schools such as One World School, both here in the Philippines and, indeed, around the world. It is with pleasure that Pandiman donated an interactive playground for the One World School.
