Why donate your birthday?

Birthdays are a time for celebration. Some of us love them and some of us don’t. But no matter how you feel about your birthday, you can use it to help save lives and transform futures.

It’s easy! Just ask your friends for donations to Mercy Ships instead of gifts. 100% of the money you raise will go directly to our current field service in Senegal.

Your birthday gifts then become gifts for others who are in desperate need of medical care.

Whatever age you are, you can use your birthday to help save lives. Now that’s a birthday you and your friends will remember forever.

Where your birthday donations go.

$25 can give life changing surgery to a patient suffering with cataracts and restore sight for life

$100 can provide physical therapy to a patient both pre and post surgery

$350 can allow a child suffering from bowed legs or club felt to walk straight and stand tall

$1,000 can renovate an existing building to provide a safe and clean environment for patients

And so much more…

Why Mercy Ships?

The need

5 billion people lack access to safe
and effective surgery. Many suffer and die every
day from curable or treatable conditions.

The work

Each year, more than 1,000 volunteers
from over 40 nations donate their time and skills
to provide hope and healing to those in need.

The solution

Since 1978, Mercy Ships has
provided life-changing surgery and medical
care to over 2.7 million people.
