Every year, 18 million people die from a lack of access to safe, affordable surgery when they need it. This is more than the deaths from HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria – combined! There is a global surgery crisis.
This Christmas you can help tackle this crisis. We have an amazing opportunity: the UK government is matching all donations made towards Mercy Ships #ChangeTheOdds appeal before December 31st. By supporting Mercy Ships your compassion will go twice as far this Christmas.
On this page, you can help change the odds for the world’s forgotten poor, find out about our Christmas carol services, what it is like to be onboard the Africa Mercy for Christmas and do your Christmas shopping while helping eradicate diseases of poverty at our online Christmas shop.
You, your family and your friends are very welcome to attend one of Mercy Ship’s carol services. We are not issuing tickets for our Christmas carol services – all you have to do is turn up on the day with friends and family members. For more infomation head over to our Facebook events page.
