About Us


… a hospital ship crewed by volunteer surgeons, nurses, teachers, agriculturalists and many more, travelling to some of the world’s neediest nations to offer free surgeries and invest 10 months in the development of local medical staff and hospital infrastructure.


The Africa Mercy, the world’s largest civilian hospital ship, is crewed by over 400 volunteers from around the world and brings hope and healing to hundreds of thousands of people who could never have believed it possible.


Welcome to Mercy Ships, a compassionate response to a world where many have lost hope.
