It is very appropriate for us that Mercy Ships brings so much good work by sea, as we represent the interests of our member ports and associate members in so many countries. We cannot stress enough the dedication and hard work shown by Mercy Ships and their teams. We are so grateful that they have allowed us once again to visit their latest facilities and that we can continue spreading the word about this excellent cause.”
