WE BELIEVE EVERY INDIVIDUAL IS IMPORTANT

Mercy Ships is an international charity dedicated to bringing hope and healing to the world’s poorest people.

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.

Discover how you can make a difference – explore our story here, find out who we are, who we serve, how lives have been transformed – and how you can get involved.
