We follow the 2000-year-old model of Jesus, bringing hope and healing to the forgotten poor. Mercy Ships uses hospital ships to transform lives and serve nations, one at a time.
Why a ship? A ship is the most efficient platform to deliver a state-of-the-art hospital to regions where clean water, electricity, medical facilities and personnel is limited or nonexistent. And, because more than 50% of the world’s population lives within 100 miles of the coast, we can reach more people who need care.
