Have you ever imagined the impact you could make by joining a network of entrepreneurs who support humanitarian missions in Africa? The Mercy Ships Network offers you the opportunity to be a part of the entrepreneurs who are changing the world and bringing smiles to the faces of those in need.

Why join this network of entrepreneurs?

Mercy Ships Network is a network of meetings, exchanges and sharing between entrepreneurs who want to change the world and have a lasting impact on the African continent through concrete actions. This network is built around strong human values and entrepreneurs who are aware that their actions can make a difference on a daily basis. Entrepreneurs who are members of the network are invited to meetings and other events organized by Mercy Ships, with the goal of informing, promoting, and encouraging the actions of the association with the impoverished populations of Africa.

What is the mission of Mercy Ships Network?

Mercy Ships Network works in partnership with businesses to support Mercy Ships’ efforts to fund surgical programs, promote volunteerism, and provide visibility for its humanitarian mission. Danielle Harbaugh, Fundraiser, reminds us of the mission of Mercy Ships since its founding in Lausanne in 1978.

Testimony of a committed entrepreneur

Richard Haffter is the CEO of Metalcolor. The first entrepreneur of the Mercy Ships Network. 

What is the basic membership package?

The first 50 entrepreneurs who join the network are granted honorary membership in the Mercy Ships Network. This is a unique recognition of their involvement in building the network and a testament to their commitment to Mercy Ships. The Mercy Ships Network member page includes the company’s name and logo to highlight its commitment (it is also possible to not appear publicly on this page). All members have access to a selection of media (photos, videos, documents, etc.) via a dedicated application. Members can use these different resources to promote and enhance their involvement in the network, whether as part of their CSR policy or otherwise.

What opportunities are there to help Mercy Ships?

Membership in the Mercy Ships Network is an important way for us to continue our humanitarian missions to provide free medical care and surgery to impoverished populations in Africa. You may wish to support Mercy Ships without necessarily becoming a member of the network. You have several options: offer to volunteer your employees, talk about Mercy Ships’ mission within your company and your network, or financially support a humanitarian project.


Simply fill out the le form, indicating that you wish to join the network. Roland Décorvet, Mercy Ships Network manager, will contact you.
Membership costs CHF 4’500.- for 3 years (CHF 1’500.-/year). It provides membership in the Mercy Ships Network, and allows you to benefit from its advantages (meetings with entrepreneurs, conferences, communications, etc.)
Yes, and we recommend that you do so. It is an opportunity to showcase your involvement and demonstrate your commitment as an impact entrepreneur.
The payment of the membership fee results in a certificate from Mercy Ships, which can be used as a tax deduction within the limits set by the canton.
