Mercy Ships owns and operates the world's largest civilian hospital ship, Africa Mercy, and offers free medical care to the poorest people in the world, as well as assisting nations to build their own medical care capacity and sustainable development through education. On board, operations, dental care and qualified medical care are offered that transform a person's life from unnecessary suffering to health and hope.

Mercy Ships has visited nearly 600 ports in more than 70 countries and helped over 2.5 million people. About 1,000 volunteers from about 40 different nations assist the work each year.
