Gratitude and Hope

As 2022 comes to an end, we look back and forward with immense gratitude. It was a year where we were able to return to Senegal to fulfill our promise. In addition, for the first time, our hospital ships, the Africa Mercy and the Global Mercy, were serving together in Africa. On behalf of all of us at Mercy Ships – partners, volunteers and patients – thank you for your support every step of the way.

We look forward to a brighter 2023. Our hospital ship, the Global Mercy, will undertake its first humanitarian mission, reaching two nations: Senegal and The Gambia. Later, Sierra Leone and South Africa await us. With these prospects on the horizon, we are aware that the future holds many reasons to celebrate. We eagerly anticipate restoring hope, transforming lives and sharing all these milestones and more with you in 2023.

Thank you for being part of this journey and sharing your time, talents, and resources with us this year – this work would not be possible without your support!

We want to share with you the video that summarizes what we have been able to do with your help.

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