This is why we deliver free, safe medical care to some of the world’s poorest people. Mercy Ships also train local doctors and medical professionals, leaving a lasting legacy in each African nation we partner with.
Tragically, 18 million people are dying every year from conditions that are entirely treatable, curable or preventable. This is because 9 out of 10 people living in sub-Saharan Africa cannot get the medical help they desperately need: people like little Mariama.
Mariama was born with a severe facial cleft. This facial cleft split little Mariama’s lip and her nose, making it difficult for her to eat and causing her parents to fear for her future. Incredible Mercy Ships supporters, like you, provided free surgery for Mariama, healing her and restoring her future.
Since 1978, Mercy Ships has followed the 2000-year-old model of Jesus, helping the lame walk and the blind see.
Today, together, we can do justly and love mercy as we share God’s love and healing with thousands more like Mariama, who are still waiting for their own life-changing surgery.
