Giving Tuesday 2019 – the biggest one yet!

Tuesday the 3rd of December was Giving Tuesday, an international day of charitable giving that kicks off the Christmas season, and this year Mercy Ships supporters have done us proud!

In just one day Mercy Ships UK received over £20,000 in donations! Thank you to everyone who donated and helped to spread the word.

How could this news be better? All the donations received for Giving Tuesday will be matched by the UK government through UK Aid Match!

This means that you have provided twice as much comfort and joy to patients waiting for surgery in Senegal and have helped to #ChangeTheOdds for some of the world’s poorest people.


The £20,000 donated on Giving Tuesday can provide:

6000 tasty meals for patients in the hospital

100 sets of specialist surgical tools

20 days of operations by sponsoring an operating theatre onboard the Africa Mercy

When doubled by the UK government this will go twice as far!


You can still have your donation matched; it’s not too late to give! The UK government are continuing to match all donations made to the #ChangeTheOdds campaign up until the 31st of December. So for the chance to have your gift doubled and save even more lives.
