Two Ships. Twice the Transformation.

Two Ships.
Twice the
Transformation.

In 2021, Mercy Ships will launch our newest ship, the Global Mercy, to join our current ship, the Africa Mercy, in our life-changing mission. This will double our ability to provide free surgeries and increase our capacity to train local doctors in the communities we serve.

It Starts with a Location

Because 50% of the world’s population lives near a coast, we can provide more surgeries for more people with our floating hospitals.

We're Built on Efficiency

In regions where resources are scarce, a state-of-the-art hospital ship is the most efficient way to deliver free surgeries.

We Create Lasting Change

Our programs include training local professionals, providing new medical tools and resources, renovating facilities, and more.

Lives Changed

Sekouba’s Story

Sekouba is a happy, kind, and smart child, but a large tumor growing in his mouth kept others for seeing him for who he was inside. His classmates teased him so badly that he dropped out of school. His own siblings were embarrassed to be seen with him. And worse than the emotional pain it inflicted, the tumor threatened to suffocate Sekouba if it wasn’t removed in time. Sadly, the surgery he needed was too expensive for his family to afford.
