Floating Hospitals. Vessels of Hope.
Our ships are state-of-the-art facilities that offer clean water, reliable electricity, and care centers. Because over 50% of the world’s population lives within 100 miles of the coast, we’re able to sail modern hospital ships with crews of volunteers directly to people who lack access to safe, affordable medical care.
Throughout the history of Mercy Ships, there have been a variety of ships in service — all used to bring hope and healing to the forgotten poor. Our newest ship, the Global Mercy, is the most recent to enter our fleet, joining the Africa Mercy to more than double our capacity for healing.
