Legacy Giving and In Memorium

“Leaving a legacy is like planting trees under whose shade you do not expect to sit.”

Imagine transforming lives and bringing hope and healing to the world’s forgotten poor for years after you pass away. That’s what can happen when you chose to leave a lasting legacy.

Around the world millions are in urgent need of basic medical care. Mercy Ships has delivered free surgeries to over 2.5 million people in need since 1978. We serve the world’s poorest nations identified by the United Nation Human Development Index. Each year Mercy Ships has 1,200 amazing volunteers who serve on board from more than 40 nations. These amazing people donate their time, finances and skills to this remarkable effort.

Our ship, the Africa Mercy, is the world’s largest private hospital ship. The ship is currently docked in Benin, West Africa. We will be providing Cataract surgeries; Cleft Lip & Palate repairs; Orthopedic surgeries; Plastic surgeries (burn reconstruction) and General surgeries such as hernia repairs. We also focus on training local health professionals in surgical techniques, patient care and sterilizing methods…so the work can continue long after the ship is gone.

With your In Memoriam donation, site will be restored, the disabled will walk again, and those with disfigurements will become an active part of society once more. What a wonderful lasting tribute to honour a family member or loved one.
