Mercy Ships Returns to Dakar in 2023, Serving Senegal and The Gambia
Over the last 30 years, Mercy Ships has been based exclusively in Africa, serving the nations of Benin, Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Republic of the Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Madagascar, Senegal, Sierra Leone, South Africa, and Togo.
Since more than 50% of the world’s population lives near a coast, our hospital ships are an efficient and effective way to bring state-of-the-art medical care to those with the greatest needs. But Mercy Ships offers more than life-changing surgeries.
While the Africa Mercy and the newly built Global Mercy sail from port to port, teams on the ground and at the Mercy Ships Africa Bureau in Benin continue to work with local governments and medical leaders to strengthen local surgical systems and invest in the next generation of healthcare workers.
