MSC continues support for Mercy Ships

A new era for the collaboration between MSC and Mercy Ships has started, as the Swiss container lines, through and with MSC Foundation, provides the global charity that uses hospital ships with logistics support for its Global Mercy, the world’s largest purpose-built non-governmental organisation (NGO) hospital ship.

In particular, MSC Belgium has recently delivered the first of 40 containers, which it has provided and organised the transport and logistics for, carrying the materials required to equip the Global Mercy for service.

The next stage constitutes the ship’s arrival in Antwerp in order to undergo its final stages of outfitting as a floating hospital. After the completion, the ship will have six operating theatres, hospital beds for 200 patients and a full laboratory and simulation training areas, according to a statement.

Furthermore, the Global Mercy will join the current flagship Africa Mercy, more than doubling the impact of volunteers and services Mercy Ships provide.

The global charity organisation which supports thousands of people without access to safe healthcare and surgery consists of volunteer staff that delivers projects of free, world-class healthcare services.

The MSC Group provides logistical support to Mercy Ships since 2011, financed by the MSC Foundation, enabling it to concentrate more of its resources on healthcare.
