HOW WE HELP
Providing Surgery & Safety
Mercy Ships delivers a total health care program to some of the world’s poorest people.
We attend to serious medical issues through free healthcare and surgeries to thousands of people every year. Our specially fitted out hospital ships are manned by a full team of medical staff backed up by a crew of technicians and organisational volunteers to keep the hospital ship running smoothly.
A major part of our commitment is the investment in local community. From training and mentoring of local medical staff to providing much needed equipment and clinic upgrades. We are building a stronger local healthcare system from the ground up with agriculture and nutrition programs, teaching preventative health and ongoing support to community healthcare providers.
