When the Volendam was last in Auckland, New Zealand, on February 14th, the ship donated 200 blankets to the Auckland City Mission. Our laundry team, led by Laundry Master Rudi Abdullah, dry-cleaned all of the blankets and then bagged them up ready for offloading. The staff at the City Mission were very grateful for the donation, and they even wrote a very nice letter of appreciation. Here are some pictures of the donation, the staff and the letter for your viewing.
