MIAMI, Dec. 28 /CSRwire/ - The annual New Year’s Raffle is taking place aboard all of the ships in the AIDA Cruises fleet. The proceeds from the raffle will once again go to a number of different projects.

For more than ten years, AIDA Cruises has supported the work of SOS Children’s Village with its worldwide projects for disadvantaged children. Thanks to our guests, it has been possible to support various SOS Children’s Village measures in Germany, Africa and the Philippines with donations totaling over one million euros.

A portion of the proceeds also benefit Mercy Ships. Free operations and dental treatment are provided to patients with urgent medical needs aboard the world’s biggest hospital ship, the Africa Mercy. AIDA employees are also onboard the Africa Mercy, helping to save lives. AIDA Cruises provides an engineer aboard this ship at all times, and has donated 100,000 euros in 2017 to help Mercy Ships’ work.

Another charity receiving donations generated fro, the raffle is The Reiner Meutsch Fly & Help Foundation. The Reiner Meutsch Fly & Help Foundation is building schools in the Philippines and in the Caribbean regions, both affected by hurricanes in 2017.

Raffle winners have the opportunity for several high-quality prizes, including upcoming AIDA cruises.

Continuous involvement in community projects is an important part of the AIDA corporate culture and a matter very close to the company’s heart.
