Little Income. Little Hope.

Up to 69% of citizens in Sub-Saharan African nations like Togo and Guinea live on less than $2 per day. Healthcare is simply not an option, either because it does not exist or it is completely unaffordable. In low-income countries, it is estimated that 85% of children need treatment for a surgical condition before the age of 15. Lack of treatment or a sometimes simple surgical solution often leads to complications, lifelong disability or death.

An Enormous Challenge

Globally, five billion people have no access to safe surgery. In low-income and lower-middle-income countries, nine out of ten people have no access to basic surgical care. But don’t let the statistics numb you. Because behind every number there is a name, a face, and a story. They will break your heart, but they will inspire you to take action—as Mercy Ships volunteers have for more than 35 years.

Transcending Borders. Changing Lives.

Mercy Ships began sailing on our mission to provide hope and healing to the world’s forgotten poor in 1978. Each year, we’ve been able to reach more people to provide life-changing surgeries.

In 2016, 1,551 life-changing surgeries were performed, as well 22,466 dental procedures. Over 6,900 medical consultations were made, and over 1,700 local African healthcare professional were trained. Every port brings new challenges, new successes—and new lives transformed forever.

Healing Continues Long After the Ship Departs

Mercy Ships seeks to leave the host nation better equipped with the training, tools, and infrastructure to care for their own.

Sustainable health care requires a plan. Mercy Ships Capacity-Building programs identify local needs and work closely with local governments to establish initiatives that make a lasting difference. We leave a legacy that extends for years—and even generations.

Training and Mentoring Local Professionals

Mercy Ships offers specialized training to local healthcare professionals—surgeons, nurses, doctors, dentists, ophthalmologists, midwives, and community health workers—in techniques and procedures appropriate for their environments.

Providing Medical Tools and Resources

Healthcare workers in the developing world often lack the medicine, equipment and tools necessary to deliver basic care.

The HOPE Center

When Mercy Ships arrives in port, screenings are organized throughout the country. Patients near the port can easily travel to the ship, but for others, reaching the ship is more difficult.

To reduce the need for multiple trips, Mercy Ships establishes a Hospital Out-Patient Extension (HOPE) center to provide housing for patients and caregivers near the ship. After surgery, the HOPE center offers a safe, clean environment that promotes effective recovery while maintaining easy access to the ship for follow-up care.

The HOPE center also frees bed space in the ship’s hospital ward, so we can help more people at each port of call.

Building Better Medical Facilities

Healthcare workers in the developing world often lack adequate facilities to serve their communities. Medical administrators with limited resources may have to choose between infrastructure development or maintenance and paying their workers. Collaborating with local healthcare partners, Mercy Ships provides construction and renovation services that enhance local healthcare resources.

Growing a Better Future

Mercy Ships partners with local agencies to help families and communities learn practical and natural food-producing skills that reduce malnutrition and increase food security. Improved crops and conservation-oriented farming methods result in more income and better health for the farmers, their families and their communities.

Training Local Leaders

Mercy Ships emphasizes lasting social change based on biblical principles. Community leaders, teachers and churches are encouraged to see themselves as agents of change. Conferences and workshops offer practical help on issues, community cooperation and sustainable development.
