New Videos Call Canadians to Africa Mercy
Mercy Ships is looking for volunteers from a wide range of backgrounds to serve in the Senegal 2019-20 field service.
Every year over 1000 volunteers from 40 nations donate their time and professional skills to support the Mercy Ships mission.
These dedicated volunteers help bring hope and healing to children, families and communities in need by serving onboard the Africa Mercy, the world’s largest civilian hospital ship.
Currently the Africa Mercy is docked in Dakar, Senegal for the 2019-20 field service, and a number of volunteer jobs are still available.
In June 2022, more than 30 Senegalese healthcare professionals boarded the Global Mercy® to equip themselves with new skills that could save countless vulnerable young lives.
