Mercy Ships operates a world-class floating hospital that spends 10 months at a time in an African nation. The international volunteer crew provides free essential surgery and dental care to thousands of people in poverty, and builds the medical capacity of the host nation for the future through mentoring and upskilling local health care professionals

Every year dozens of Kiwis serve among the 480-strong crew that offer their skills for weeks, months and even years at a time in medical. maritime and operational roles. The huge-hearted volunteers pay their own way to serve, and then gifts-in-kind are given by our corporate partners. That means every gift given by individuals and businesses is increased in impact; it simply goes further!
