Stanford Marine Group has been supporting The Angel Appeal since 2013. When SMG was approached to be a partner, Darren Reeves, General Manager, said "Giving back to our society is embedded in how we do business. Our passion for involvement in the local community drives us to constantly seek new avenues for generating CSR awareness and support. We strive to operate our business in a more enlightened way, taking responsibility for our impact on society and the environment. As part of the Marine Industry we are committed to the protection of marine life and habitat, however our aim is to also have an impact in our community through: education, health and wellness, economic development and environmental sustainability." They not only support the MV Flying Angel but they also support the many welfare cases that we have in the UAE when seafarers are in trouble. In particular, for over two years, two seafarers were stranded in Sharjah Hamriyah - no salary and no money for supplies. Because of the generosity of SMG, we were able to provide them supplies on a weekly basis as well as phone cards. In addition, when the seafarers were finally able to leave, we were able to purchase their tickets home for them with this support.
