Mercy Ships New Zealand

Mercy Ships New Zealand is part of an international community of people dedicated to bring hope and healing to the world’s poorest people. This chain of linked hearts stretches across the world to deliver free healthcare services to people of all ages in desperate circumstances - people who have no chance to get the medical help they need until a hospital ship from Mercy Ships comes to town. Some volunteers onboard the Mercy Ship performing life-transforming surgeries and services, others are around the world donating, praying and encouraging each other to make a difference. Here you can find out more about us, the people we serve, stories of lives transformed and discover how you can make a difference by being involved.
