Mercy Ships

Mercy Ships is an international faith-based
organization bringing hope and healing to the
world’s forgotten poor. As many as 5 billion
people lack access to safe, affordable surgical
and anesthesia services worldwide, and less than
6% of all operations are delivered to the world’s
poorest countries. Marginalized populations
continue to suffer due to a lack of trained
healthcare providers, inadequate infrastructure,
and disproportionate out-of-pocket healthcare
costs. Mercy Ships programs offer holistic
support to developing countries, striving to make
healthcare accessible for all. Since 1978, Mercy
Ships has delivered services to more than 2.84
million beneficiaries. The countries served by
Mercy Ships are ranked as the poorest in the
world by the United Nations Human
Development Index.
