Each year Peninsula Petroleum funds a number of local and international charities through our charitable foundation. Our team help us decide which charities we support.
Save the Children UK
Peninsula Petroleum donated $10,000 to Save the Children’s Philippines Typhoon Appeal in 2014. This support and the support of thousands of individuals enabled Save the Children to reach 490,000 people. This support helped protect children and families in the immediate aftermath of the disaster and Save the Children is continuing to work in the Philippines to ensure families have the long-term support they need to rebuild their lives.
Save the Children saves children’s lives, fights for their rights and helps them fulfil their potential. We do this wherever and whenever we are needed.

The Mission to Seafarers
Around the world, The Mission to Seafarers provides help and support to the 1.5 million men and women who face danger every day to keep our global economy afloat.
The Mission to Seafarers work in over 260 ports caring for seafarers of all ranks, nationalities and beliefs. Through a global network of chaplains, staff and volunteers they offer practical, emotional and spiritual support to seafarers through ship visits, drop-in centres and a range of welfare and emergency support services.
Piracy, shipwreck, abandonment and separation from loved ones are just a few of the problems merchant seafarers face. In an emergency, the MtS is often the only help on offer. No matter what problem a seafarer is facing, be it injury, abandonment, non-payment of wages or personal difficulties, they know they can turn to the local Mission for help, advice and support.
The Mission to Seafarers was founded in 1856 and is entirely funded by voluntary donations.
