Friday Dana Perino from Fox News daily show 'The Five' will be broadcasting live from Mercy Ships' Africa Mercy in Benin.

The Mercy Ships part is scheduled for 'The Five' show that airs 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. EST March 10, probably toward the end of the broadcast.

This will be Perino's second visit to a Mercy Ship.

Social media events that are tentatively scheduled around the live broadcast include a live question and answer session on Perino's Facebook page Thursday (March 9) at 5:30 p.m. ET and a Facebook Live broadcast on Mercy Ships' Facebook page at 10:20 a.m. ET Friday.

Perino may also take over Mercy Ships' Twitter account (@MercyShips) between noon and 1 p.m. ET Friday.

Mercy Ships is the charity of choice for Cruise Lines International Association and will be featured during Seatrade Cruise Global next week as part of a new partnership with the event.

The Costa Group also recently launched a partnership in support of Mercy Ships.
