COMMUNITIES AND ENVIRONMENT

Building healthy communities to save more lives

When our ships depart a country, we strive to help leave an improved healthcare system in our wake. Before, during, and after our field services, Mercy Ships implements healthcare training projects that teach the medical knowledge, skills, and attitude needed to provide hope and healing to patients long after our field service. 

The Mercy Ships Medical Capacity Building projects help strengthen the standards of surgical care within the local communities of the countries we serve.

The legacy is a lasting impact that extends for years — and even generations.
