Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line Partners with Global Nonprofit, Mercy Ships
By Brian Weis
Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line (BPCL), the only provider of two-night cruises and Cruise & Resort stays to Grand Bahama Island from the Port of Palm Beach, is proud to announce a partnership with Mercy Ships, an international nonprofit that operates the world's largest non-governmental hospital ship, providing free, lifesaving surgeries for people living where medical care is nearly nonexistent. Cruisers of all ages will have the opportunity to learn more about the transformative work of Mercy Ships across the globe and give back through a series of fun and impactful onboard partnership events.
"We at Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line aim to provide guests with an enriching and immersive cruise experience that is just as memorable as it is meaningful," says Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line's CEO Oneil Khosa. "We are thrilled to partner with Mercy Ships and provide both our crew and passengers with fun ways to give back to such an incredible organization directly impacting thousands of patients around the world."
Founded in 1978, the floating hospitals of Mercy Ships have provided services and surgeries valued at over $1.53 billion, impacting more than 2.71 million of the world's most disadvantaged in more than 581 ports in 57 nations. This global charity has performed more than 95,000 surgeries onboard since 1978, removing tumors, giving sight to the blind, correcting clefts, fixing fractures and more.
"We are honored to build a partnership with Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line that will provide their staff, crew and passengers the opportunity to learn more about Mercy Ships, as well as volunteer and support our programs through annual campaigns," says Mercy Ships Director of Corporate Development, Russ Holmes. "Partnerships like this one allow us to continue transforming lives each day in the nations we serve."
A variety of special partnership events and programming with Mercy Ships will be available onboard Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line voyages to create awareness and excitement as well as opportunities to donate. The full details of these events are in the works and will be announced soon.
