You can help empower more volunteers to serve on board our hospital ships.

From teachers to technicians, surgeons to speech therapists. It takes a whole village to run a hospital ship. Now, we need more volunteers than ever before. But money is often the barrier.

Your gift could empower someone who is ready and willing to go. Someone who can’t afford the fees, including from low-income countries. Your gift will truly help transform lives. Give now.

Volunteers on board our hospital ships can transform lives with free, safe surgery and provide training for local healthcare professionals.

Regular donations allow us to plan for the future. Please will you help transform lives today?

Give hope and healing. Give monthly.
