Vega wins an award for Humanitarian Assistance

This prestigious award presented by the Asia Pacific Laureate Foundation came as a complete surprise to us. We were not even aware we had been proposed for it. Meggi and I were given this award in recognition of  “Humanitarian Services to Isolated Island Communities” We are very excited about it. As our friend Capt. Marty says “Great news mate, you and Meggi really deserve this award.” But as we see it this award should really go to our sponsors such as Jotun Paints, QBE Insurance, ModuSpec and Scandinavian Bunkering along with all our private supporters. Together they make our work possible. Without them we simply could not help the communities we assist in a meaningful manner.
