Concordia Maritime supports Mercy Ships Cargo Day
Mercy Ships Cargo Day is being held for the third year and Concordia Maritime is one of the companies supporting the activities on board Mercy Ships’ hospital ship.
Mercy Ships is a charity organisation that provides surgeries, dental care and other qualified medical care free of charge for people in poor countries who have no access to necessary health and medical care. Since 1978, the organisation has treated more than 2.5 million patients. Mercy Ships operates the world’s largest private hospital ship, the Africa Mercy, with six fully-equipped operating rooms and six sick rooms with a total of 80 beds on board.
In addition to surgeries, Mercy Ships works closely with training programs for nurses and doctors in the different host countries. About 1,000 volunteers from around 40 different nations support work every year. Thanks to the combined action of the shipping and trading community through the Cargo day, Mercy Ships can continue using its hospital ship in order to help the lives of millions of people in need.
