A Message of Hope

As 2021 draws to a close, we look both behind and ahead with immense gratitude. This year was filled with many unexpected obstacles and difficult decisions. It was a challenging time for many of us around the world — but we faced each of those challenges together. On behalf of all of us here at Mercy Ships — our staff, our volunteers, and our patients — thank you for your support every step of the way.

We look ahead to a brighter 2022, in hopes that we will soon gather and serve together once again. With the return of the Africa Mercy to Senegal at the end of January, and the maiden voyage of our brand new Global Mercy on the horizon, we already know that the future holds many reasons to celebrate. We eagerly anticipate restoring hope, transforming lives, and sharing all of these milestones and more with you in 2022. Thank you for being a part of the journey and sharing your time, talents, and resources with us this year. This work would not be possible without your support!

We wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year, truly special season with your loved ones. May it be a time of peace, joy, and celebration!
