ITC Global extends charity vessel VSAT contract

Non-profit organisation Youth With A Mission Medical Ships Australia (YWAM MSA), which operates a medical ship serving the Papua New Guinea (PNG) region, has had the vessel’s VSAT communications contract with ITC Global extended by three years.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Under the terms of the agreement ITC Global says it will provide connectivity and new crew welfare services for the onboard staff of up to 130 volunteers, via the ITC Crew LIVE service which offers internet access and a library of TV shows and movies.

The vessel, based in Queensland, Australia, is staffed by medical professionals who work in collaboration with national and provincial health authorities in Papua New Guinea’s health system to deliver medical services and supplies to remote villages.

“We originally began working with YWAM Medical Ships in 2015 on a two-year contract and have grown our partnership as we’ve been supporting the organisation and its mission,” said Yagnesh Rajendran, vice president of global enterprise, ITC Global.

“Our renewed agreement is a testament to how vital our services are to YWAM operations and to the crew of generous volunteers as they work to bring modern medical care to those who need it.”{/mprestriction}
