Schenken Sie Hoffnung & Heilung
Unser neues Schiff: Die Global Mercy
Unsere Schiffe dienen uns als schwimmendes Krankenhaus. An Bord finden chirurgische Operationen, Vor- und Nachsorge sowie Weiterbildungen statt. Bald schon werden wir mit einem zweiten Schiff noch mehr Menschen in Afrika helfen können, als je zuvor!
Geschichten unserer Patientinnen und Patienten
Millionen Patientinnen und Patienten in Afrika, darunter viele Kinder, leiden unter Erkrankungen oder Fehlbildungen, die mit einer Operation heilbar wären. Klumpfüße, Tumore, Verbrennungen oder der graue Star werden nicht behandelt und schränken das Leben der Betroffenen massiv ein. Im schlimmsten Fall führen sie zum Tod.
Mercy Ships arbeitet mit Partnern weltweit zusammen, um Patientinnen und Patienten wie Yaya, Gamai, Roger oder Ulrich zu helfen.
Story of Amadou
Amadou was the very first patient to recieve a free surgery on the Global Mercy.
Story of Khoudia
Khoudia had lost all hope:no local hospital was able to perform the surgery she needed.
Story of Kadidja
At first glance, Kadidja is just like any other child. The 4-year-old girl is happy and energetic. She loves to dance, play, and eat good food. She brightens up any room with her fearless energy and hardly ever stops giggling. But something was holding her back.
Story of Houleye
Houleye had to bear the weight of a tumor nearly half the size of her face.
Story of Amadou
For the last 15 years, medic Amadou refused to be defined by the tumour on the side of his face.
Story of Kadiatou
One can hardly watch Kadiatou trying to keep her balance on her twisted legs.
