Speaking at the cheque handover ceremony, NBF’s CEO Vince Cook said: “We are proud to continue to support the Mission to Seafarers thus reinforcing the spirit of solidarity amongst all community members in Fujairah and beyond. As we celebrate the Year of Zayed, it is important to remember that the spirit of giving and adding value where possible, underpin our relationship not only with our clients but also with our community. Over the years, we have been able to work with the Mission to Seafarers to meet the basic needs of seafarers who have contributed to Fujairah’s success as a world-class oil bunkering hub and seaport.”
NBF has been in partnership with MtS since 2012 and also undertaken several other initiatives to support its home Emirate over the years.
