Hospital Chaplaincy (Canadian program)

The Hospital Chaplaincy Team facilitates the following for patients onboard the Africa Mercy, and at the HOPE Centre:

  • Counseling sessions for patients and their caregivers to address spiritual, emotional, psychological, and social issues
  • Spirituality enriching opportunities such as worship service and meditation time
  • Mind-stimulating activities such as play therapy, arts, and crafts activities

Mercy Ships Canada funded the Hospital Chaplaincy Program during Mercy Ships 2016 field service in Benin and will fund the 2018 field service in Guinea.
