On 22 November, the first meeting of the young Mercyships cargoday committee was held, which we created with (from left to right) Claudia Beumer of Verenigde Tankrederij, followed by Corrine Kemp of Mercy Ships, Lykke Saulnier Kristiansen of Braskem, and Henk Mooij of Vertom Tanker Chartering. Judith Toth of Riverlake is not on the picture.
Following on from the very first committee set up in Geneva, then Houston, Singapore and London, we are together developing a strong Dutch committee based in Rotterdam to help Mercy ships.
Mercy ships is an NGO that uses hospital ships to provide essential medical support, changing the lives of those who could not otherwise afford it. Over the past 30 years, Mercy Ships has conducted 41 field services in 14 African countries with the 16,572-ton Africa Mercy (with five operating theatres and 80 patient beds). This mission is now complemented by the 37,000 ton Global Mercy (with 6 operating theatres and 199 patient beds).
