The SUNDAY documentary team follows New Zealander volunteers providing free essential surgery for the poor, on board a hospital ship in West Africa. The patients on the Mercy Ship suffer from extreme conditions never seen in this country, and their life-transforming operations unleash a whole new future.

There’s heartache, passion and moments of pure joy as the huge-hearted volunteer medics serve their patients on the Ship of Hope.
