“Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts often tend to be shore-focused, but through our alliance with Mercy Ships, we’re breaking barriers and extending the opportunity to give our valued seafarers an opportunity to give back. By actively engaging them in this noble cause, we empower our sea staff to make a profound difference by working hand-in-hand with Mercy Ships’ dedicated team to deliver life-changing healthcare services.”
Vice President, Operations
“It takes a village to make a difference. Mercy Ships not only delivers care but is improving healthcare capability and capacity. We need partners like them to be able to make a real difference.”

“When we heard about how Mercy Ships is changing lives among the world’s poorest, we felt the least we could do was to donate some mooring lines to the cause.”
Mark Pieter Frolic
Lankhorst Ropes USA & Phillystran
“Delighted to be supporting Mercy Ships in their work to change the odds from some of the poorest people in Senegal and West Africa. Employees engage with Mercy Ships in a multitude of ways as they seek to raise funds for the charities incredible work in providing free surgery and medical care.”
“We are all keen to continue to support Mercy Ships, because it is doing a great job in the poorest parts of the world, helping people who just simply cannot access the healthcare they need. What company wouldn’t want to support an organisation like that? It is a fantastic charity. We will be doing this for years to come, I am sure.”

Mercy Ships offers free training for the long-term maritime volunteers who help keep our ships running.
On average, the Maritime Training Programme offers training to 150 crew members and staff each year. This innovative training programme means that deck crew are fully qualified to International Maritime standards and fully licensed.
By offering the training free of charge to committed deck and engineering crew, we not only ensure that our excellent maritime standards are met, but we show how much we value our maritime volunteers and their careers.
“The best thing about my job is when I learn something new. When I have the feeling that I’m gaining mastery of it, I get excited that I can pour the same thing back into my country.
“Working is not just to earn money, but it’s like a calling that brings passion and life into what you’re doing: especially in serving others.”
Denise Ngum, Cameroon
Electrician on the Africa Mercy
“One of the perks of being a seafarer is to see the world, and immerse myself in the cultures of the world. But I always wanted a chance to give back and help people. When an opportunity such as this one surfaced, I jumped at it. Now, not only do I get to see the world, I get to help the less fortunate and work on board a ship!”
Zeng Liang, China
Fire Fighting Officer on the Africa Mercy
“I chose to volunteer with Mercy Ships as an amazing opportunity to use my skills onboard a ship that is doing such incredible work, and being part of a huge team who all have the same motives is really exciting.”
Alden Plows, UK
3rd Officer on the Africa Mercy
“I enjoy the role of Deck Hand very much. I’m involved with painting, engine maintenance, loading and unloading, operating the deck crane, and cleaning. On a night shift, you can find me on the bridge as I check the ship’s fire safety. As I’m used to having an ‘office job’ in the maritime industry, experiencing these operational responsibilities is really interesting to me. I volunteer 40 hours a week and that leaves me with much more free time than I expected. The crew onboard feels like a family because we share important values.”
