The Africa Mercy has recently joined the Global Mercy in Tenerife, where both ships are gearing up for next year. Soon the Global Mercy will return to Dakar to welcome patients from Senegal and Gambia, while the Africa Mercy enters a period of maintenance in South Africa, enabling her to serve alongside her sister ship for many years to come! In the second half of the year, she will travel to a new country to bring hope and healing!
We look forward to experiencing all of this with you by our side!
