Mission & Vision
Mercy Ships is an international faith-based organisation with a mission to increase access to health care throughout the world.
Mercy Ships uses hospital ships to transform individuals and serve nations, one at a time. Through the deployment of the world’s largest charity hospital ship, the Africa Mercy, Mercy Ships works with host nations to help fill the gaps in health care systems, while serving the immediate needs of their population.
Mercy Ships provides a variety of training opportunities for medical professionals (surgeons, nurses, administrators, and community health workers), along with curative surgical interventions.
Collaborating with qualified local and international partners, Mercy Ships programmes offer holistic support to developing nations striving to make health care accessible for all.
As a Christian charity, Mercy Ships freely serves the poor without regard to race, gender or religion.
