4th of October is Mercy Ships Cargo Day

Help us make a lasting impact in Africa.

After a successful premiere, we are happy to announce the second annual Mercy Ships Cargo Day. On this day, the global shipping and trading community joins together to raise support for Mercy Ships, an NGO operating the world’s largest private hospital ship, serving in the poorest countries in the world.

Join the community and help expand the ability of Mercy Ships to deliver medical care and strengthen healthcare delivery systems in African nations.

Cargo Day Starts In

Your gift goes further

Alongside financial donations given towards our Mercy Ships programmes which provide surgeries and world-class medical care in Africa, twice as much is received through the combination of generous gift-in-kind from corporate sponsors and services provided by our volunteer crew who pay for the privilege of serving onboard. This model also helps us to provide hope and healing at no charge to our patients and their families.
