The foundation responded to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic by donating dozens of laptops and awarding emergency grants to help students study remotely and those at risk of dropping out. This year, the ACMF launched a dedicated jobs board, ACMF-CAREX, to support aspiring maritime professionals in the Caribbean find positions in the industry.
