Stena Line is a proud partner of the Mercy Ships Charity

Free Healthcare for Some of the Poorest People on this Earth

The humanitarian organisation Mercy Ships sails fully-equipped hospital ships staffed with volunteer doctors, nurses and crew members to some of the poorest countries in the world. In circumstances where proper medical care is almost non-existent, they provide free, life-saving treatment, giving patients a new chance to enjoy a healthy, happy life. The organisation was founded in 1978 and since then, Mercy Ships has visited over 580 ports in 73 countries and helped managed to help 2.5 million people.

Care is part of our soul

"Care is part of our soul, which means that our sustainability work is more than just environmental initiatives. Our partnership with Mercy Ships will now also become an important part of that work and it gives us an exciting opportunity to engage employees, customers and partners to make a difference."


Niclas Mårtensson, CEO at Stena Line
