Satou’s Story

Satou is a strong-willed and happy child, but her windswept legs caused many in her community to reject her. “She doesn’t like being sad,” her mother, Khady, said. “She is determined and gets very upset when she feels disrespected.” Over time, the taunts of others made Satou feel ashamed and helpless.

La historia de Satou

Satou es una niña de carácter fuerte y alegre, pero sus piernas deformadas hicieron que muchos en su comunidad la rechazaran. “No le gusta estar triste”, dice su madre, Khady. “Es una niña determinada y se enfada mucho cuando siente que le faltan al respeto”. Con el tiempo, las burlas de los demás hicieron que Satou se sintiera avergonzada e indefensa.

Hope for Houleye

Houleye was born with a tumor on her neck that grew larger and more dangerous as she grew older. Her condition not only brought judgement and teasing from other children in her village, but the tumor began to impair Houleye’s ability to move her neck and head. It soon grew to be nearly half the size of her face.

Esperanza para Houleye

Houleye nació con un tumor en el cuello que fue creciendo y haciéndose más peligroso a medida que crecía. Su estado no sólo le valió el juicio y las burlas de otros niños de su aldea, sino que el tumor empezó a mermar la capacidad de Houleye para mover el cuello y la cabeza. Pronto creció hasta alcanzar casi la mitad del tamaño de su cara.

Two Ships. Twice the Transformations.

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.

Exciting things are happening as this long-time dream becomes a reality! Click on the icon for continued updates on the Global Mercy including sea trials, outfitting, and field service schedule.
