Local Sanitary Training
Mercy Ships aims to leave the host country better equipped with the training, tools and infrastructure necessary to care for their own.
Development of the health system
Often the quality of medical care in developing countries suffers from lack of training and lack of adequate facilities to provide quality medical care. We work with national health services and others to identify needs and develop programs to improve these areas.
Training and education
Mercy Ships offers training programs tailored to the needs and equipment available in each country for surgeons, nurses, dentists, ophthalmologists, midwives, health education teachers and other medical personnel. WHO material on the management of communicable diseases is also taught.
Thank you for considering supporting Mercy Ships. The most effective way to contribute on a personal level is with a monthly donation. When we donate a monthly amount, we don’t notice much of a difference, but at the end of the year it adds up to an amount that can really make an impact in the life of a person in need.
