mercy ships world cargo day 2020!
04 November 2020
A day where the shipping community raises funds for Mercy Ships
Mercy Ships is an organisation which operates the world’s largest civilian hospital ship. Access to quality healthcare in Africa is still very complicated, especially in the continent’s more rural or remote areas. Many people are still dying due to a lack of access to medical care or put aside in society due to illnesses or handicaps that are easily treatable in our modern developed countries. Since 1978, Mercy Ships has provided services and materials in developing nations valued at over $1 billion and impacting more than 2.5 million direct beneficiaries through 587 port visits.
Thanks to the combined action of the shipping and trading communities through the Cargo Day, Mercy Ships can continue to help the lives of millions of people in need through its hospital ship.
Historically, the global shipping and trading community has come together in supporting this fantastic cause. Our collective efforts and generosity are needed again this year to change the lives of those in need.
