Since 1978, the Mercy Ships fleet has served in more than 70 port areas around the world. Into an ocean of need, dedicated volunteers representing over 35 nations bring together their wide-ranging skills to make a lasting difference.
Mercy Ships uses hospital ships with multi-national crew and staff to bring world-class medical assistance and long-term sustainable development to some of the world’s poorest regions. Land-based teams and projects supplement the work of the ships.
The Africa Mercy is the largest non-governmental hospital ship in the world.
