Kuo Family

Volunteer Kuo Family

Fred and Maria, Lily, Connor and Asher are crew on board the world’s largest civilian hospital ship. 

Volunteering with Mercy Ships

The Kuo family are full-time Mercy Ships volunteers for 2 years, from June 2023, as Maria serves as a Clinical Ward Supervisor. The family are living on board the Global Mercy. Fred serves on board in a part-time role while supporting Lily, Connor and Asher who go to school in the Mercy Ships Academy.

How to be part of their support team

The Kuo family plays a special role in the Global Mercy crew, contributing to the important community dynamic on board. Without Maria doing her part managing the on-ship wards, our crew could not offer life-transforming surgeries to people in sub-Saharan Africa who can’t access the treatment they need.
