Transforming Lives and Empowering Communities

Sustainable development is a universal call to action to ensure the well-being of everyone. The Mercy Ships Canada Global Surgery Impact Portfolio helps improve patient access to healthcare in Africa because timely and affordable surgery is essential to people of all ages. The provision of surgical care touches every aspect of the health system. Together, we are addressing the underlying causes of surgical care delay: a lack of essential workforce and equipment, infrastructure deficits and poverty.

Explore Mercy Ships Canada's work and partner with us to help accelerate positive social change. We provide free surgeries to patients and foster improvements in surgical healthcare service delivery. Our volunteer crew and staff are dedicated to helping transform lives and empower people and healthcare professionals in low-resource African communities. Together, we can make a lasting difference in the lives of children and adults we serve.
