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

The Cargo Day online fundraising event raised so far more than 7 million in 7 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.

Nearly $2,000,000 was raised for the charity Mercy Ships with 57 Mercy Cargoes,16 address commissions and 40 pledges donated in 2022. This is a record amount raised since Mercy Ships Cargo Day started in 2016. These increased results are due to the generosity of: 30 charterers, 19 shipbrokers, 25 shipowners, 3 port agents, 3 consulting and other shipping companies.

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.
