Mercy Ships Cargo Day 2019 raised a magnificent $1.3 million

You have helped us make a lasting impact in Africa.

27 Charterers, 21 Shipowners, 28 Shipbrokers, 3 Port Agents and 4 Service Companies / Associations participated in Cargo Day 2019 on November 6.

In total, 135 cargoes were allocated by brokers and charterers, 20 address commissions were contributed by charterers, while shipowners stepped forward with 34 pledges of money. Thanks to your support, more than $1.3 million was raised.

The global shipping and trading community has really joined together in supporting Mercy Ships, an NGO operating the world’s largest civilian hospital ship serving some of the poorest countries in the world. Your generosity is changing the lives of those in need!

Cargo Day 2020 is scheduled for November 4. We look forward to working together once again.

Leading shipping publication TradeWinds continues to follow the work of Mercy Ships. It has recently published the following articles focusing on the tough decisions that had to be taken in response to the Covid-19 global pandemic, how our “key workers” plan to return to serve in Africa, and the need for many more volunteers when our new, purpose-built Global Mercy enters operation in 2021.
