Two out of three people worldwide do not have access to safe, timely and
affordable surgery. Together we can change this.
Mercy Ships seeks to transform individuals and strengthen healthcare,
leaving a lasting legacy in every nation we visit.
Bringing hope and healing through our hospital ships and in-country
training has been the mission of Mercy Ships for more than 40 years.
Thanks to our supporters, those suffering from painful and preventable
diseases can find the care they desperately need.
To date, Mercy Ships has worked in more than 55 developing countries,
providing services valued at more than £1.3 billion, directly
benefitting more than 2.8 million people.
The global impact of COVID-19 has touched everyone and deepened the
surgery crisis in the least developed countries. The need for this work
is more paramount than ever.
