Canadian Direct Surgical Services & Medical Equipment
Your investment in direct surgical services and medical equipment can help make a positive social impact and contribute to sustainable development goals for reducing inequalities and promoting good health, well-being, decent work, and economic growth.
Five billion people lack access to timely, affordable, safe surgical and anesthetic care. Unmet surgical demand affects predominantly low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs). Mercy Ships provides surgical care needed to prevent and treat conditions related to maternal and child health, non-communicable diseases, and trauma using modern medical equipment essential to reducing mortality and morbidity at all life stages.
Mercy Ships Canada volunteer crew preoperative, operating room, PACU and ward nurses, anesthesists, physicians, and other professionals are part of an international team addressing healthcare disparity by providing holistic free surgical care in Africa that empowers patients and helps renew hope for families and communities. Learn more about our eight areas of surgical focus below.
The project aims to provide equipment, specifically a dental hospitainer for the Africa Mercy hospital ship. While operational, the dental hospitainer will be used by Mercy Ships in multiple countries as the volunteers and the hospital ship conduct their field service activities.
Mercy Ships trains local surgeons in Ponseti casting, the “universal standard” in non-invasive clubfoot correction, and provides free surgical intervention for musculoskeletal conditions, neglected orthopedic trauma and joint diseases.
Mercy Ships Canada is a registered charity operating across Canada. We provide medical services and training programs so those who don’t have access to healthcare will get the help and healing they need to live whole and happy lives.
