Our hospital ships provide free medical care in
Mercy Ships operates two vessels; transportable platforms for our volunteer crew to provide free essential surgery.
Global Mercy joining Africa Mercy enables Mercy Ships to place even more emphasis on training and mentoring local healthcare workers, and assisting Africa’s healthcare systems strengthen for the future.
There has never been greater need to make safe, affordable and timely surgery available. 5 out of 7 people globally don’t have access to the medical care they need.
What Mercy Ships has achieved
Do justly, love mercy, walk humbly
Mercy Ships is an international faith-based charity, dedicated to bringing hope and healing to the people in sub-Saharan Africa.
Together with your help, we bring 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.
Our volunteers perform life- transforming surgeries, provide desperately needed healthcare and training, run the ship, feed the crew, support with donations, prayer and encouragement to all those involved in this mission of mercy.
