Who are Mercy Ships

We are a team of nurses, doctors, surgeons, and other crew members from all over the world, donating our time to help on board the world’s largest non-governmental floating hospital.

As a floating hospital, we can sail to some of the world’s poorest people to deliver life-saving medical care and provide safe, state-of-the-art facilities in which to treat them.

Our supporters are a vital part of the team, paying for essential medical supplies and ship repairs.

Together, we have helped to transform the lives of more than 2.540,000 people in the poorest countries of the world since 1978.
