Cargo Day NOW open for online fundraising!!!

Join us for this year’s Cargo Day online fundraising event.

Shipping and trading community digs deep to bring hope and healing to people in sub-Saharan Africa.

The Cargo Day online fundraising event raised almost 5 million in 6 years by the shipping and trading community! 

This generous gifting contributed in providing free surgical and medical care to some of the most vulnerable people in sub-Saharan Africa.

Charterers, shipbrokers, owners and more donate part of their commissions and give pledge amounts to have a bigger impact in Africa.

Mercy ships is a NGO that uses hospital ships to provide essential medical support, changing the lives of those who would not otherwise be able to afford it. During the past 30 years, Mercy Ships has conducted 41 field services in 14 African countries with the 16,572-ton Africa Mercy (with five operating rooms and 80 patient beds). This mission is now complemented by the 37,000-ton Global Mercy (with 6 operating rooms and 199 patient beds).

How to Participate: Join us online, signup and invite others you know who may want to participate in this year’s event to raise more than the previous years.
