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.
