Mercy Ships is a story that is worth sharing! Thousands of transformed lives through free-of-cost surgeries are an empowering message of hope.

While Mercy Ships takes care of the poorest in the world, we invite you to give a voice to those who can’t speak for themselves. Find on this page articles and coverage about Mercy Ships, and elements to speak of our work.
