Independent experts in foil and hologram security, Security Foiling Ltd, has chosen Mercy Ships as its charity of choice for this year.
To launch the partnership, Mercy Ships attended the Security Document World 2011 conference alongside Security Foiling, where the charity addressed delegates on the work of Mercy Ships at an evening event. Donations were received from fundraising activities which took place at the conference.
Mark Filby, Operations Manager of Security Foiling, said: “We are delighted to partner with Mercy Ships as we have strong business interests in Africa. When we first heard about the charity’s work in Africa we felt an instant connection to the cause and really wanted to help. Africa is one of our biggest export markets and this partnership is the perfect opportunity for us to give something back. We also have a personal connection to the charity through one of our employees, Marcel Djogo from Togo, whose father’s sight was restored after receiving a cataract operation on the Africa Mercy when the ship visited the country last year”.
