What’s so Special about a Gangway?

The gangway.

Some of the most powerful moments happen on this big metal staircase – A patient takes their first steps of anticipation and hope up into our floating hospital. A recently arrived crew member carries their bag to their new home.

Another group bids a sad farewell to a departing friend. Another patient descends, their life transformed through surgery, full of joy and gratitude, ready to go home and greet their families once again.

If you want to see the everyday miracles in action, the Africa Mercy’s gangway is the best place to catch a glimpse of those special moments.

We look forward to docking in Cotonou, Benin and seeing the many new faces who will walk up our gangway to begin their journey towards healing.
