Corporate Social Responsibility
For more than 40 years, Mercy Ships has collaborated with a wide variety of organizations and companies (listed below) that contribute finances, goods and services to provide medical services directly to people in underdeveloped countries, and to train local health professionals.
It is proven and evident that employees enjoy working for companies that “give back”, and customers prefer to support companies that make a difference in this world.
There are several ways in which companies can involve Mercy Ships in their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs.
You can contribute your own services or products, enabling Mercy Ships to provide help to many more people in need.
Another way in which companies can collaborate is by encouraging their employees to volunteer with us and providing them with the opportunity to collaborate, even without spending their annual leave, or by giving them a few hours each week to contribute their volunteer skills with us.
Some companies provide information to their employees about the work of our NGO by offering to double the employees’ contributions to the NGO.
If you want more information about how your company can collaborate with us, please contact us.
Generally for every euro that is donated in cash, Mercy Ships receives an additional €2 in donations of products and services, allowing the NGO to triple its effectiveness in the field.
