80 companies and $7 million collected in 7 years. Mercy Ships Cargo Day is an online fundraising event created by the Shipping & Trading community and Riverlake is part of it since day 1.
The Cargo Day online fundraising event raised money for Mercy Ships, a NGO that uses hospital ships to provide essential medical support, changing the lives of those who would not otherwise be able to afford it. Since 1990, Mercy Ships has conducted 43 field services in 14 African countries with the 16,572-ton Africa Mercy (with five operating rooms and 80 patient beds) and with the 37,000-ton Global Mercy (with 6 operating rooms and 199 patient beds).
This generous gifting contributes in providing free surgical and medical care to some of the most vulnerable people in sub-Saharan Africa. Charterers, shipbrokers, owners and more donate part of their commissions and give pledge amounts to have a bigger impact in Africa.
