Sending Mail from Senegal

paulsenapaulsena Posts: 4

Hello all!

I am from the United States and will be onboard Africa Mercy from March 15 - June 6th as a Ward Nurse! Just a quick thought and I am sure somewhat of a silly question, but can we mail letters from Senegal back to our home countries? If so, do I use local postage and US postage? Wondering if I should bring some US postage with me.

Thanks! Look forward to joining the Mercy Ships community very soon!

    Thank you for willingness to volunteer as a Ward Nurse with Mercy Ships! We are so grateful for our volunteer nurses.

    You can purchase US stamps onboard the Africa Mercy in the Post Office onboard. You can send letters from there, but not packages. If you want to send a package, you will need to find a crew member who is returning to the US to take it and send it for you from there.

    Please let us know if you have any further questions.
