Kids everywhere are invited to join eight-year-old Fride as she takes us onboard her family’s floating home, a hospital ship in West Africa. Fride has all kinds of unusual experiences on the Mercy Ship she calls My Mercy Box. Fride narrates each 10-minute story written for kids, and each episode is a mini-adventure as she explores life on board and ashore in Benin, West Africa.

My Mercy Box is a unique, light-hearted and entertaining children’s glimpse into the developing world.

We have a fabulous free gift for you to use alongside each inspiring episode. My Mercy Box activity packs, created by New Zealand teachers for primary school children or for church kids’ programmes, are yours with a click, below.
