Swiss crewmembers in 2018

In 2018, 79 people from Switzerland joined the Africa Mercy. Like the other volunteers, they sought financial support from their family and friends, or perhaps even from their own savings, to pay for their flight tickets and even to contribute to the cost of accommodation and meals on board the ship. With a total of 5,719 days of service, the value of their voluntary commitment corresponded to a saving of more than 3.8 million francs for Mercy Ships!

Meet the 79 Swiss volunteers who served on board in 2018!
