Cargo Day Santa brings Christmas cheer to Africa’s poorest people

Supporters of Mercy Ships Cargo Day 2020 have delivered about $700,000 Christmas gift 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.

There is still time to donate before the end of the year and we reveal the final total.

So far, Cargo Day 2020 has raised $769,897 comprising $491,023 from 113 Mercy Cargoes and $278,873 from pledges, including 32 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.
