Changing a Country One Life at a Time
For over 40 years, Mercy Ships has offered healing and restoration by offering direct medical services, medical capacity building and strengthening relationships that improve healthcare systems.
To see every African have access to safe and timely healthcare.
Everyone has a right to equitable healthcare so that more people can live healthy lives. Our vision is to serve Africa’s healthcare needs with professional volunteers, hospital ships, and programs that meet the highest standards of care.
To bring first world healthcare to a developing country.
There is a healthcare crisis in Africa. Every year, poverty and inadequate health services leave millions of people vulnerable, sick, and infirmed. As a result, individuals and communities cannot flourish because of hardships caused by barriers to work, caring for their families, or pursuing education.
It is our mission to bring accessible healthcare services to people in great need. We do this by offering surgical, eye and dental care and medical capacity-building programs designed to strengthen healthcare systems. Contributing to improved Africa healthcare means more people can participate more fully in social and economic activities. Improving lives and communities (and ultimately the country) is the impact of our work.
To model Jesus's example by aiding the poor and healing the sick.
