An unforgettable adventure

Meet our crew of volunteers!

A global community of volunteers bringing hope and healing onboard the world’s largest fleet of non-governmental hospital ships. For example, the Africa Mercy is home to over 400 short-term and long-term crew members who offer a wide range of expertise: seafarers, engineers, plumbers, carpenters, information technology staff, teachers, surgeons,  nurses, dentists, cooks, photographers and more. Mercy Ships would not exist without our amazing volunteers!
