The Africa Mercy, is the world’s largest charitable floating hospital. With 75% of the world’s population living within 150km of a port city, we can reach people who live with little or no healthcare in some of the poorest parts of the world.

We don’t have to build hospitals wherever we go, because the ship is a hospital, with five state-of-the-art operating theatres and all the facilities we need to carry out life-changing treatments. It provides a safe, clean, controlled environment, ideally suited for both patients and crew.

The Africa Mercy is 152 meters in length and weighs 16,572 GRT. After seven years in UK shipyards being renovated from a rail ferry into a hospital ship, she began her career as a Mercy Ship in 2007 in Liberia, West Africa. With five operating theatres and an 82-bed ward, the Africa Mercy is the world’s largest charity hospital ship.
