Today is Giving Tuesday, the largest giving day in the world, and we’re so excited to be part of it this year. We’ve achieved a lot in 2020, and have a powerful vision for the communities of West Africa for 2021 and beyond.
To help make that vision real, we’re aiming to raise $10,000 in just 24 hours and need your help to get there.
Five-year-old twins, Osseynou and Assane came to the Africa Mercy for help in straightening their bow legs.
This is a condition that can develop, or be made worse, through nutritional deficiencies. This is why the Mercy Ships Food for Life programme is every bit as important and life-changing as the surgeries we perform.
This programme works with members of local communities to improve their food supplies and their knowledge of good health and nutrition practices; meaning fewer children are likely to need surgical intervention on this, and other conditions.
The money raised on Giving Tuesday this year will go to training costs, tools and equipment for the Food for Life students.
Please help us help these amazing, caring, determined people to provide a healthy, happy, football-filled future for these kids by making your special gift now.
