Mercy Ships is an international faith-based organization, with a mission to increase access to health care throughout the world.

Through the deployment of the world’s largest, private hospital ship, the Africa Mercy, Mercy Ships works with host nations to help fill the gaps in health care systems, while serving the dire and immediate needs of their population.

Mercy Ships provides a variety of training opportunities for medical professionals (surgeons, nurses, anesthesia providers, administrators, and community health workers), along with curative surgical interventions.

Collaborating with qualified local and international partners, Mercy Ships programs offer holistic support to developing nations striving to make health care accessible for all.

Mercy Ships freely serves the poor without regard to race, gender or religion.
