Cargo Day brings cheer to Africa’s poorest people

Supporters of Mercy Ships Cargo Day 2020 have delivered more than $700,000 that will help change the lives of thousands of people in Africa.

The annual fund-raising event, which began on November 4, has  been an amazing success.

And for that a big thank you and seasonal greetings to the world shipping and trading community which has once again rallied behind Mercy Ships and the medical care it provides to people in some of the world’s poorest countries.

Cargo Day 2020 has raised $787,456 comprising $503,432 from 111 Mercy Cargoes and $284,024 from pledges, including 34 contributions of between $1,000 and $10,000, eight of $10,000-$25,000 and two of at least $25,000.

Some 19 address commissions have also been shared with Mercy Ships, which operates the world’s largest civilian hospital vessel, Africa Mercy, and will soon take delivery of a newbuilding, Global Mercy.
