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 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
Only a few months ago, Houleye had to bear the weight of a tumor nearly half the size of her face. Life with this tumor was all Houleye had ever known.
Story of Kadiatou
One can hardly watch Kadiatou trying to keep her balance on her twisted legs.
Story of Aicha
Without her mother’s milk, Aicha became malnourished. Soon her legs began to bow outward.
Story of Haingo
Viviaby tries everything to feed her baby, Haingo, born with a cleft lip. But an unexpected encounter will change the course of her life forever.
Story of Vanya
While other children play and run, Vanya sits on the sidelines. When they cry and laugh, she remains silent.
