Over 1 Billion
People in Need

Nearly 50% of people in Africa have little to no access to a qualified doctor or a hospital. Safe medical care is something that is out of reach — and so many are suffering. In response, Mercy Ships is working to help provide a solution. Our hospital ships help our dedicated volunteers reach families in sub-Saharan Africa in order to provide safe, free surgery while expanding medical capacity, and creating lasting change.
