Stena Line´s customers support 23 life-changing surgeries

During September and October Stena Line runs a Group-wide Coffee Campaign on board all ferries to support the Mercy Ships charity in their efforts to deliver free health care to people in need in the developing world. After one month, Stena Line´s customers support is equivalent to 23 life-changing cleft palate surgeries.

During September and October Stena Line’s customers are being given the opportunity to choose to buy their coffee or tea on board the ferries in a special Mercy Ships mug where 20p will be donated directly to the humanitarian NGO Mercy Ships. After one month more than 21 000 Mercy Ship mugs have been sold on board. This means that Stena Line´s customers support is equivalent to 23 life-changing cleft palate surgeries, enabling children like Somaya to be able to eat, talk and smile again.

The campaign runs on all Stena Line vessels until 31st of October.
