2 out of 3 people in the world, so approximately 5 billion people, do not have access to basic surgical care.
The NGO Mercy Ships operates the largest civilian hospital ship in the world.
Mercy Ships uses a hospital ship to provide more than 1,500 surgical operations and 8,000 dental treatments each year to those without access in developing countries. In addition, Mercy Ships supports host country health systems through training and infrastructure renovation.
Discover all that Mercy Ships has been able to accomplish in Guinea! Our hospital ship, the Africa Mercy, was in Conakry from August 2018 to June 2019. Thank you to all those who volunteer on board our hospital ship and all those who support Mercy Ships financially!
