GENEVA SWITZERLAND, 29 JANUARY 2021 – In a gesture of solidarity, PPE shipments are in process of being sent to 11 partner nations by Mercy Ships in coordination with the charity’s European Distribution Center in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Shipments are destined for Benin, Cameroon, Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ghana, Guinea, Liberia, Madagascar, Senegal, Sierra Leone, and Togo.
In collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Social Action, Mercy Ships will raise awareness in district health posts, health centers and regional hospitals.
Potential patients should be directed to the regional Hope Centers for registration during the registration week in their region.
People who are recognised as potential patients can be registered in one of the registration clinics or through our online form.
Mercy Ships their Patient Selection Team will visit regional hope centers to assess the registered patients.
Selected patients are invited to come to Monrovia for a secondary examination by a Mercy Ships surgeon.
Once the Mercy Ships surgeon has seen the patient, he or she will be scheduled for surgery. Once the surgery and follow-up care is completed, the patient will be able to return to their home.
When is Mercy Ships coming to Liberia?
The Africa Mercy will be arriving in the middle of August 2020 and will stay for a 10 month field service.
How do I register a patient?
Registration will begin several months before the arrival of the ship and will be communicated locally and on this website.
I want to work with Mercy Ships. How can I do this?
We will be needing many people to help as translators, extra hands, and partners during this time. There is much more information on this page about this.
