Mercy Ships Cargo Day

For the first time ever, the global shipping and trading community worked together during the Mercy Ships Cargo Day to raise support for Mercy Ships, an NGO operating the world’s largest private hospital ship, serving in the poorest countries in the world ranked by the United Nations Human Development Index. A second ship is currently under construction and will be fully deployed in 2018, thus expanding the ability of Mercy Ships to deliver medical care, while significantly increasing capacity building and training potential.

Your gift goes further

78¢ of every dollar Mercy Ships spend goes straight to our ships and field operations to provide surgeries and world-class medical care to those who have no other hope. Just 22¢ is set aside for overhead expenses and general costs. Plus, every dollar received triples in value, thanks to the support of our generous corporate sponsors.
