Heading to Senegal

We are very excited to return to lovely Senegal!

Mercy Ships is a global charity, which uses hospital ships to bring hope and healing to nations who are holistically building stronger healthcare systems. This will support the healthcare aspect of the “Emerging Senegal” strategy.

The volunteer professionals of Mercy Ships are honored to partner with Senegal’s health ministry by offering immediate surgical intervention onboard the Africa Mercy, sharing advice and resources to build Senegal’s own capacity, and will assist the Minister of Health where we can in creating a dynamic national surgical plan. All of Mercy Ships services are offered in Senegal at no cost.
