According to the Lancet Global Surgery 2030 Report, an estimated number of 16.9 million people die yearly due to lack of access to surgical care. Over 93 percent of the population of sub-Saharan Africa do not have access to safe and timely surgery
The vision to transform lives by bringing hope and healing through surgery has guided Mercy Ships since the beginning. With each ship, lives are transformed in the nations we serve. But the need is ongoing.
The Global Mercy™ hospital deck will be ready to carry out a wide range of surgeries like maxillofacial and plastic-reconstructive surgery to address tumor removal and debilitating burn contractures, cleft lip and palate repair, orthopedics, cataract removal, and obstetric fistula repair.
This expansion and growth will facilitate more — more surgeries for those in need; more health professionals trained and mentored.
More lives changed!
